Spoons was a comedy sketch show first broadcast on the United Kingdom's Channel 4 from 30 September 2005. In the United States, Spoons is broadcast on BBC America. The relationship themed show combined recent trends in sketch shows—dark content, strong language, and recurring catchphrases.

It was produced by Endemol owned production company, Zeppotron.

Channel 4 didn't recommission the show for second series due to low ratings and bad reviews.

The programme appeared at around the same time as two other similar sketch series based on relationships—Five's Swinging and BBC Three's Man Stroke Woman.

Adaptation[edit]

In March 2008, TV network ProSieben adapted a version of Spoons for German television. The show keeps the original English title, and recycles much of the humour from the original UK version.

DVD release[edit]

The complete series featuring all six episodes was released on DVD in the UK on 20 August 2007.
