Life on the island is rather Orwellian: each colorful member of the community is monitored by a surveillance system of tessellators, from local folk dribbler Melody Lane (Justin Chubb) to weather monk Tracee Henge (David Hatton). The tessellators include video cameras for surveillance, but also little screens to allow the residents to watch important island events, such as the tri-annual island cow wash (live from Glotters Field). Additionally, they include a handy slot for paying fines, and a sphincter nozzle for product and pill downloads. Each episode features a notable guest star. Some of the biggest names in comedy, from Stephen Fry to Olivia Colman, have appeared on the show. See less
