A hidden treasure: healthily anarchic fun for teenagers
Daniel Peacock may be considered something of an auter (ooh get me!) in the distant future. He has been involved in UK shows such as Diary of a Teenage Health Freak, Harry & Cosh and Cavegirl and all have something of a unique feel (more Larry David than Peter Engel in quality and style thankfully). They are all shows for teenagers that absolutely hit their target audience where they live, with their shockingly realistic portrayal (albeit exaggerated for fun) of the gleefully nasty anarchy of raging adolescence.

The sad thing is that the show is broadcast on a Saturday afternoon on UK's Channel 5 which, whilst a terrestial channel, is not very well promoted, thus neither is "Harry & Cosh" . If the show was on Children's TV (BBC or ITV) it would surely be at least a cult hit (even as a TV addict, I only came upon it this year, 2002, it was so well hidden). However, if it was more well known it would doubtlessly garner many a parental complaint, due to the nihilistic and erotic obsessions of Harry, Cosh and friends. Seen as Peacock's latest show "Cavegirl" has similarly been broadcast on a new digital channel, maybe the subversive writer/director is deliberately keeping low-key, like the trojan-horse of kid's TV.... no it's probably just those damn controllers/schedulers.
