If you’re not watching FEARnet’s Tuesday night lineup of the Twisted Comedies “Todd & the Book of Pure Evil” and “Psychoville”, then you’re missing out. Here are sneak peeks of this week’s episodes (number 3 for each in case you’re counting) airing at 10:00 PM and 10:30 PM (ET), respectively.
“Todd and the Book of Pure Evil” (Tuesdays at 10 PM) – This supernatural comedy featuring Jason Mewes (Mallrats, Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) tells the story of a small-town high school kid trying to save the world. In each episode, Todd and his cohorts are pitted against the dark powers of a mysterious book that grants seemingly innocuous wishes with sinister, unexpected, cataclysmic, and downright satanic side effects. Created by Craig David Wallace, Charles Picco, and Anthony Leo, the series was highly-successful in its Canadian television debut. FEARnet.com will also feature “Todd and the Book of Pure Evil” extras and related editorial content.
EPISODE 3: “Rock ‘N Roll Zombies Know Best” Todd’s attempt to make Jenny jealous back-fires and almost gets him and Curtis eaten by a couple of rock n’ roll zombies.
“Psychoville” (Tuesdays at 10:30 PM) – This award-winning British black comedy thriller series centers on a group of characters haunted by a mysterious blackmailer. Written by and starring Reece Shearsmith (“The League of Gentlemen”, Shaun of the Dead) and Steve Pemberton (“The League of Gentlemen,” “Doctor Who”), “Psychoville” is the only comedy ever to feature a serial-killer obsessed man-child, a one-handed clown, a blind tycoon, and a possibly telekinetic dwarf. “Psychoville” debuted to great fan reception on BBC Two, earning the prestigious British Comedy Award for “Best New TV Comedy.” In addition to the half-hour episodes on FEARnet HD, fans will find bonus show material at FEARnet.com.
EPISODE 3 – “Jelly” The plot continues to thicken as Mr. Jelly, the one-handed children’s entertainer, reveals how he ended up that way. Meanwhile, Mr. Lomax travels to the private auction of Snappy the Crocodile in Dudley.
