Scatological,ultra-acerbic,but funny review show
3 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The journo/writer-performer Charlie Brooker lifts the lid on his opinions of modern day TV,both in the UK and US.His savagely witty criticisms in the Guardian Newspaper have by and large,been successfully adapted to this digital TV programme.Brooker's clever,bitterly acerbic,imaginative,often hilarious critiques are further helped by breathlessly quick pacing and editing.He actually does like some TV programmes(most notably THE WIRE,shamefully neglected by terrestrial TV in the UK),but inevitably his most entertaining rants are at TV shows he hates(reality shows,daytime programming,etc.)which are gleefully attacked with rottweiller-like insane relish.Brooker's eternally stylish wordplay is sometimes over-balanced by frequent use of profanities which,though occasionally funny,sometimes go too far and take the reviews/sketches/interviews out of context and defeat the object at hand.

Charlie's unique brand of sophisticated scatology will certainly not be for the easily offended,but often gloriously entertaining for those who don't mind whatever he says.

Rating:7 and a half out of 10.
