The 70s TV game show The Golden Shot had a crazy plot line.
It's worth keeping up your sleeve as a lethal weapon in the fight against the mantra of "keep the story simple" or "people don't get strange".
At its peak, the show had a viewing audience of 16million.
A viewer talks on the phone to Bob and simultaneously tells a blind-folded bloke who is operating a camera with a weapon attached to it to fire a crossbow bolt at a big target, whilst millions of other people watch it at home.
Convoluted, medieval, join-the-dot-ist narrative at its finest!
