About the show
A new absurdist fantasy comedy series commissioned by Dave in the United Kingdom, Zapped is written by Dan Gaster, Will Ing and Paul Powell, produced by Baby Cow Productions and executive produced by Ing, Gaster, Steve Coogan and Simon Lupton. The first series, which premiered on October 13, 2016, contains three 40-minute episodes.
The show`s storyline is built around Brian Weaver (James Buckley) transported to a parallel universe by means of a magical amulet. This world is inhabited by unlikely creatures, such as “psychopathic Fairies, Shell Men, seductive Demi-Fins and vicious Throcks”. Brian is more than eager to return home, but it is quite a feat that seems next to impossible in a world that is completelybeyond his understanding and is full of strange beings. Zapped also stars Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones), Kenneth Collard (Cuckoo), Louis Emirick, Ricky Grover and Sharon Rooney (My Mad Fat Diary).
Reception and chances of renewal
The reviews of the show are mixed, and while many reviewers agree that Zapped is well-acted, amiable and silly, the reviewers find that the jokes are spread thin, the pace is too slow, and that tropes have taken over the dialogue. The first series of Zapped debuted with a reasonably sized audience of 0.56 million viewers, and we may very well see more of Brian Weaver in the future. Stay tuned and we will let you know when Dave makes a decision on the future of Zapped series 2.
