What: Green Wing is a British sitcom that's set in a hospital but, thank goodness, there are no medical story lines and no sign of the patients. Instead, the show focuses on the personal lives of characters including hapless Caroline, smarmy Guy, unflappable Mac, perky Angela, hopeless Martin, and possibly sociopathic Sue.
Comparable to: The above picture is the first series DVD cover, but the image below will give you a better idea of the show's forays into vaguely surrealistic slapstick:
Representative quote: "Join us again for next week's episode of Let's Make No Fucking Sense, when I will be waxing an owl."
You might not like it if: You want fictional doctors to be intelligent, responsible, compassionate individuals who are primarily concerned with the welfare of their patients.
How to get it: The bad news is that the DVD is only available on region 2 format (unplayable on most U.S. players). The good news is that you can watch Green Wing online through IMDb and Hulu.
Connection to previous Wreckage: One of the main characters, Caroline, is played by Tamsin Greig. She has experience playing hapless from her role as Fran on Black Books (Rec. #68).
