Wasted: The Complete Series (DVD)
E4 hit comedy from the triple-BAFTA winning writing team James Lamont and Jon Foster (The Amazing World of Gumball / Paddington).
Starring Game of Thrones Sean Bean, Dylan Edwards, Gwyneth Keyworth, Danny Kirrane, and Rose Reynolds.
An ode to the stupid stuff people get up to when bored.
His Bristol DJing career in tatters, Kent (Dylan Edwards) returns to the Somerset village of Neston Berry to stay with old schoolmate Morpheus (Danny Kirrane), Morpheus sister Sarah (Rose Reynolds) and her friend Alison (Gwyneth Keyworth)
The four have been left in perpetual adolescence while others have moved on with their lives, and live in an endless cycle of cheap drink and drug-fuelled escapism.
Morpheus soon meets his spirit guide, a self-parodying Sean Bean in full Westeros-style Ned Stark getup, who gives the boy some questionable advice on how to tackle problems that arise in each episode.
Surreal cartoonish humour is mixed with gross-out gags a plenty, pop culture references and weird yet charming characters featuring in abundance.
Directed by Tom Marshall (Chewing Gum / Drifters), there are fast edits, musical cutaways and fantastical elements.
What the press said:
"Sean Bean steals the show as he parodies his Game of Thrones ghost“ - Telegraph
"Daft and gross with the odd dab of sweetness, theres also something enjoyably nostalgic in Wastedsdepiction of aimless, pleasure-seeking youth. Add Sean Bean gruffly enjoying a stick of candyfloss to that mix, and you cant really go far wrong.Bean fully commits to every appearance. Its genuinely worth tuning in for those moments alone." - Den of Geek
