All six episodes from the first series of the surrealist BBC sitcom directed by Matt Lipsey and written by and starring Chris Bran and Justin Chubb. The series follow the bizarre and whimsical antics of the residents of the fictional island of Jinsy, where couples are paired up by a ‘wedding lottery’ in an attempt to keep the gene pool clean, and the authorities keep a close eye on the eccentric locals with the help of coin-operated ‘tesselator’ surveillance machines.
