Not too bad considering.....
30 September 2009 | by (England) – See all my reviews

As a massive fan of Charlie's Screenwipe & Newswipe, at first I wasn't too keen and was fearing the worst for this, but it has grown on me. Immediately hearing jokes just to make the studio audience laugh had me shaking my head and feared a very poor attempt at a mainstream Screenwipe, but by episode 3 or 4 I was warming to it and mainly became interested and was enjoying it for much of what I like about Screenwipe, which is the fact that I don't watch television in the traditional sense. I generally find out about & watch TV shows online, as the way TV has gone there is very little for me nowadays and the set is only switched on for football and specific shows airing new episodes. So this serves a similar purpose to Screenwipe for me in that I get to see what I'm missing, but with Charlie's distinct take on things. This alone makes it an enjoyable watch for someone like me. In addition, I was pleased to see certain guests such as Frankie Boyle & Frank Skinner (and the always delightful Victoria Coren) and whilst it may not be the best thing ever or even on a par with Screenwipe, I still found it worthy of watching every episode. Any complaints I may have are minor and borne out of the fact that it's just Screenwipe for the masses, but that doesn't instantly make it awful. I've judged this on it's own merit and 6* may not be a great rating (it's just my crazy scale) but I did like the show and hope for more.
