“Same planet, different century.” Goofiness of the finest kind as “contestants” try to win a million bucks by sending useful information back to the 14th century?by telephone. Genetically linked to Monty Python’s “Summarize Proust Competition,” Kasper Hauser’s “Phone Call to the 14th Century” is a clever collision of sketchy history and woefully good intentions set in a premise that’s completely reasonable, but makes no sense whatsoever; my kind of comedy. Witty, well-produced, programmable anywhere, anytime. This would be an enjoyable break in anyone’s day.
