I run home to watch this program even though i know it will be on i-player!
The title made me sound sad, now i'm going to make myself sound sadder still. I saw my first episode of screenwipe halfway through series 4. I had just finished watching QI on BBC4, i was going to turn it off when Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe started and i couldn't move I just sat and watched it through to the end completely captivated my only movement being when i laughed- most of the time then. After that i have watched it religiously and i suggest everyone else does the same.
When series five came out last week i didn't even want to miss the advert break that came before it. My debating club finished at ten and i ran home to be back in time to watch it at the proper time. The next day i tuned into i-player and watched it again, i watched it another 4 times before the next episode came out yesterday.
If a program can be so good as to captivate me like that and turn me into some mad obsessive it surely has to be worth a try. Watch it! I don't think i need to say anymore.
