Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is a comedy series made for Channel 4. Created by Matthew Holness and Richard Ayoade, it is a parody of the horror genre and revolves around the character of Garth Marenghi himself, a writer of pulp fiction played by Matthew Holness.
This show is a fantastically funny parody of 80s television. If you never saw 80s television you will hate this show. It is meant to be cheap looking, over the top, and poorly acted. I wish there had been more than one season.
