Looks Unfamiliar #12: Steve O’Brien – E.T. Pretzel Design

skydivers

Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever does. Joining Tim this time is entertainment journalist Steve O’Brien, who fills us in on his hotly contested recollections of existentially troubling animation Simon In The Land Of Chalk Drawings, high-concept short-lived snack KP Sky Divers, sitcom spinoff Health And Efficiency, High Time and Ice Cold Cube by The Stone Roses, the BBC Sunday Classics serial Brat Farrar, and the Alfred Hitchcock And The Three Investigators books. Along the way we’ll be finding out who is officially the most punchable Doctor Who alien, what constitutes The Vindaloo Of Corn Snacks, and how many volumes of Michael Winner’s Choose Your Own Adventure Books were published.
