Based on a long running stage show in which the audience got to decide how the story evolved. At the end of each episode, viewers could vote by telephone on what happened in the next episode. The actors often did not see the script for the next episode until 2 days before it went to air. See more »
This series was a riotous, ultra-low-budget spoof of daytime hospital dramas, loaded with brilliantly hysterical overacting, threadbare sets and special effects, wildly improbable plot twists and turns, insane dialogue and just plain stupidity. Can't forget Warren and Effie's beautiful 'Fatty and Skinny' songs, Richard Lovechild's 'Ciao, losers' catchphrase, Matron's grotesque voice, Ray Good's big hair and seventies threads, Roy the Cat, 'Julio in glasses', and George's hopeless devotion to Matron, who was only interested in whacking and humiliating him. Also, Effie was actually very sexy, within the context of the show - another good reason for staying up late to watch it! Another fun thing was the way the actors bellowed all their lines, as if they were still performing in a scuzzy little fringe theatre production somewhere! The finest Australian import before Natalie Imbruglia, LET THE BLOOD RUN FREE is a cult waiting to happen.
