And back in the 1990's, I wrote, directed, and starred in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. Only now, in the worst artistic drought in broadcast history, Darkplace has been unearthed...

    While I do love this show, I think it's already been discussed to death.

    Dark Place is pretty old, relative to the other shows that follow its forumula. The best character is the boss, by far.

    The doors of Darkplace were open. Not the literal doors of the building, most of which were closed. But evil doors. Dark doors. Doors, to the beyond. Doors that were hard to shut because they were abstract and didn't have handles. They were more like portals really. From this day on I'd have to fight these forces of darkness, and deal with the burden of day-to-day admin.

    International Adult Swim is not the same as US Adult Swim. This has never been picked up by local networks. I don't have any pay TV packages that include the cartoon network. This might be difficult.
