Dave’s obscure fantasy series Zapped returns for a third season where Brian (James Buckley) is still trapped in Munty but has managed to escape the assassin who was trying to kill him at the end of Season 2. The problem is Brian is now being forced to perform in a travelling circus, run by the sadistic Feffenhoffer (Steve Coogan).
Meanwhile, following his failed attempt to send Brian back to Earth, Howell (Paul Kaye) has found himself transported to Earth and has adapted to life in Brian’s old place of work. Whilst Howell enjoys Earth (especially karaoke) he aims to find a way back to Munty.
When Herman (Louis Emerick) visits the circus he spots Brian and tells Barbara (Sharon Rooney) and Steg (Kenneth Collard) who set out to rescue Brian.
Verdict: 7/10. An excellent return for a show that gets better every time you watch it. Zapped might not be for everybody but those who do like it will be more than pleased.
