The sharpest critique of television.
4 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is truly one of the most acute and sophisticated analysis of current tele-tat that we are all being subjected to on a daily basis. Brooker does not just articulately demolish some of these visual atrocities on our regular prime-time diets but he also manages to point us in the right direction. His occasional hints towards the greatness of some of the yester-years television feasts are as much part of the programme as the infectious comedy portrayals of the all the things that are wrong on that virtual world on the other side of screen.

I commend Brooker's bold attempt for a fabulous and yet hard hitting message-worthy programme and hopefully, it keeps us all more in touch with our sarcastic and bitter side, with many more of its episodes.

Sheer genius from the BBC.
