Set in a parallel dimension - number nine, oddly enough.

Featured a crystal entity called The Dynotrope, set in the centre of a big lake. This is also where the wizard-figure-frozen-in-time (Mercator) used to go into suspended animation at the end of each show. He was convicted of some crime by his own people, who were - as the Captain Zep-style theme music put it - "gonna take your time away". Bands, etc. would come on and feed the Dynatrope video tapes (ie. chuck them in the water) in order to keep it going.
