The British are coming!* (*To basic cable late-night procedural spoof TV.)
The very special "NTSF:SD:SUV::" episode filmed in London, titled "U-KO'ed" (Thurs., Sept. 26 at midnight on Adult Swim), is finally here, and we've got an exclusive sneak peek (above). It's a two-parter, which really means it's about the length of a normal sitcom. Maybe a little less. But still so much more awesome.
Check out the clip, above, to see "NTSF" newbie Daisy ("Doctor Who" alum Karen Gillan) doing her best American accent and impersonation. Because, you know, Americans are known for loving the USofA, no matter how tackily, ingesting a ton of high fructose corn syrup, wearing jorts and novelty t-shirts when traveling abroad and generally being pretty oblivious to social clues.
Posing as the very American cousin of a wealthy Brit (played by "Buffy" alum Anthony Stewart Head), Daisy brings along her servant lady, who's really just Piper (June Diane Raphael) doing her best "Upstairs, Downstairs"/"Downton Abbey" British accent and impersonation. Of course, that was the easiest and most obvious plan. Of course.
We've seen the whole "movie event" and can also share six fun teases to get you even more excited:
1) Fans of BBC's "Sherlock" will get a kick out of one scene in particular.
2) Big Ben rings at some very opportune times.
3) The show will make you look at Rubik's Cubes in a whole new way.
4) "Arrow's" always-suspicious Walter Steele (Colin Salmon) is a bit suspicious here, too.
5) While the hilarious Peter Serafinowicz usually just voices S.A.M., we actually get to see his face in this episode.
6) Even though the show is saying this is all taking place in the Little Britain area of San Diego, they really did shoot in London -- and on the same budget as normal episodes -- with creator and star Paul Scheer directing.
Tell us: Are you excited to see the team travel to faux-Britain?
