The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin (Apple TV+) - S: Noel Fielding - Premieres 3/1/2024



In “The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin,” Dick Turpin (Noel Fielding) sets out on a journey of wildly absurd escapades when he’s made the reluctant leader of a band of outlaws — and tasked with outwitting corrupt lawman and self-appointed thief-taker Jonathan Wilde (Hugh Bonneville). In this irreverent retelling set in the 18th century, Turpin is the most famous but least likely of highway robbers, whose success is defined mostly by his charm, showmanship and great hair. Together with his gang of lovable rogues, Turpin rides the highs and lows of his new endeavors, including a brush with celebrity, all whilst trying to escape the clutches of the thief-taker.
Sounds like a version of Our Flag Means Death...

Anybody else watching this? Its insanely goofy humour is just my cup of tea, and I've been having a blast so far.

Watched the first two eps - and it's cracking me up. Fun stuff so far.

I am so sad this was only six episodes, but all of them were great. I really hope this gets renewed for a second season.
