Possibly the funniest program on television.
10 April 2007 | by jsbeckwithSee all my reviews

This program is possibly one of the funniest program on television. Brooker bitingly analyses TV and (very occasionally) doles out praise. But mainly the fun comes from when he gets on obscure or dire programming and subjects it to his sarcasm. That's where the fun begins. He is the most sarcastic person that I've yet to see on television. He is so scathing that occasionally I actually gasp and laugh at his comments; practically a first for me: this man is that good.

Overall, one of the funniest programs on television. And one of the greatest cases for leaving in all the crap of it: let this man comment on it for evermore.
