How TV Ruined Your Life
9 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Following on from the great Screenwipe, and also You Have Been Watching, this new programme from the comically brash television presenter sounded like it could be good, so I watched. This programme is a satirical near comedy documentary from Charlie Brooker that focuses on how television programmes, fact and fiction, that create certain emotions for the audience, show us how things are in life, give us ideas and memories (good or bad), and much more besides. The episodes in the series have covered fear, the life-cycle, aspiration, love, progress and information. The show is basically Brooker giving his his amusingly blunt opinions on how television (and small bits of films) have created these with the well known clichés and stuff, with some stock footage (funny and serious), and even some spoof re-imagining of the genres being looked at. I don't think it has quite the same edge as Screenwipe or You Have Been Watching, but it is a relatively funny and interesting series. Very good!
