Sketch comedy series

  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: Unlike the well-researched Star Trek/Star Wars/Doctor Who sketches, the TV takes on the films of The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter tended to fall into this - for example, Frodo's said to be on a quest to find the One Ring, and the Harry Potter and Voldemort impressions sound nothing like those in the films. (The radio edition's voices for the Harry Potter characters predated the first film, and they stuck with those even after it was released.) Interestingly, the Michael-Gove-As-Gollum impressions, while not sounding much like Gollum does in the films, do bear a striking resemblance to the Gollum from the older BBC audio dramatisation of the books.
