I don't have same fond memories of High Life as you do.

And you're right, someone has put the whole nine yards on YouTube. I thought I'd give it another chance but I had to switch off after a few minutes. Not my cup of tea then and not my cup of tea now. And I usually like Siobhan Redmond and (to a lesser extent) Alan Cumming.

Now if you'd mentioned High Times I'd have been with you all the way. Now that was a brilliant Scottish comedy that for some reason has been criminally neglected.

I don't even know if they showed the series in England. (I read somewhere that it was sold to a South American channel and it's become a smash hit sandwiched in between the the four hour Chavez speeches and the six hour Castro speeches. Strange but true.)

If you've never seen it, some kind soul has put the first series on YouTube.

That 'MegaJamie20' over at YouTube deserves a gold star for that public service. And apparently s/he is also going to upload the second series at some point in the future.

Btw, the film High Life is a recommended movie from where I'm standing. It has a heist gone wrong plot that you've probably seen fifty times before but the dialogue's sharp and the performances - especially the turn from Rossif Sutherland - are first rate.
