The Blizzard of Odd was a review show shown on the Irish channel RTE 2 from 2001 to 2005. Host Colin Murphy would review tv shows, cult films and internet clips much in the same style as many Caustic Critics of the internet today.
The show had a cult fanbase in Ireland during its run, but has been put on indefinite hiatus. It's unlikely that it will return, as some have speculated that the advent of video sites such as YouTube has essentially killed the show off. 16 years after the last series, it seems unlikely the show will ever return...
The Blizzard Of Tropes:
- Deadpan Snarker: Colin Murphy.
- New Media Are Evil: YouTube is blamed for the show's cancellation.
- Oireland: Lambasted mercilessly when it came up in anything being reviewed. A notable example was the notorious drive-by swording scene from the Murder, She Wrote special, The Celtic Riddle.
- Stylistic Suck: In keeping with some of the works reviewed, a simplistic No Budget look is invoked.
- Spiritual Predecessor: To internet review shows.
