Schedulers on C4

You have to laugh - on the same day that the Media Guardian has an article on TV channel schedulers ("Calling the slots") - C4 manages to screen a corking example of scheduling gone wrong in a most delightful way.

For those who did not catch it, Mesh is superb, a vibrant and violently bonkers example of contemporary animation. Well, at least LAST night's example was all that and more.

Mari Umemura's Limbo-X-treme really probably should not have been on at 7.55pm. Decapitation, blood, bodily excess (was that someone taking a leak in the background?!)... it was fantastically OTT. I sat with my jaw-dropping. We loved it. I suspect some post-news parents were not so keen...
