Absurd and alarmist Daily Mail-esquire shock treatment
14 December 2005 | by (Can you get me a cup of coffee, please?) – See all my reviews

This is a real TV show shown in the UK (BBC 1 tonite, actually). And it's hysterically alarmist.

The set-up is simple. Two parents are taken into a big room where the show's presenter, some psychologist woman, tells them their kids are too fat/lazy/unhealthy, and eat/smoke/watch TV too much. Then she shows them a CGI animation of their kids - and what they will look like when they are 40. Which, as you'd expect, is hideous, and even their expressions are angry and sad.

The psychologist lady then says, "You're KILLING your kids." At which point, the mother usually brakes down in tears.

Seriously, this is a real show.

The kids then come in, AFTER the scary future pics of them are gone, and the family are given instructions as to what to do over the next three weeks to SAVE THEIR FUTURE.

The parents come back after three weeks of following the show's instructions, and get to see a new version of their kids at 40 - looking ridiculously healthy and cheerful.

It's my favourite TV show, it's laugh out loud funny and ridiculous. It's also quite disturbing though. Not only does it show just how lame UK parents are these days, but it's got a real 'Do as we say or your kids will die' tone.
