Storyline

The series follows Arbiter Maven (the 17th Arbiter and 'Wearer of the Hat') and Operative Sporall (nice hair and 'Wearer of the Beige Suit') as they keep a close eye on the 791 residents of Jinsy from the Great Tower in the parish of Veen. Life on the island is rather Orwellian: each colourful member of the community is monitored by a surveillance system of tessellators, from local folk dribbler Melody Lane to weather monk Tracee Henge. The tessellators include video cameras for surveillance, but also little screens to allow the residents to watch important island events, such as the tri-annual island cow wash (live from Glotters field). Additionally, they include a handy slot for paying fines, and a sphincter nozzle for product and pill downloads. Notably, each episode of This Is Jinsy features a notable guest star actor. Some of the biggest names in comedy - from Stephen Fry to Olivia Colman - have appeared in the show.

future cult classic
7 July 2015 | by info-63293See all my reviews

You need Jinsy in your life, comedy for adults that doesn't include obscenity of some description is a difficult task but they achieve it with a wealth of odd characters that have been so meticulously worked out you will forget all the famous faces you see and believe them all to be residents of jinsy. the main storyline (that gets more intriguing as the show unfolds) creates a warm bizarre environment that you want to be part of, there are some annoying segments (the weatherman) but they are more than made up for by the main cast/story,series 2 pushes the mystery of the island further leaving you wanting more. this will be a future cult classic and fans of the mighty boosh should make sure they see it, personally I cant wait for series 3 and the uncovering of the Great he
