Brilliant
27 October 2012 | by baileydanielpSee all my reviews

All of the negative reviews of the show centre around repeatedly stating the fact that this is not Black Mirror or it's like Airplane, it isn't Blsck Mirror get over it, it is like Airplane that was the intention get over it.

I watched an interview with Charlie Brooker before seeing this so maybe the fact that I knew what to expect before watching helped.

The show was brilliant from beginning to end, the jokes were well timed and numerous holding me between a smirk and out loud laughter all the way through.

The only reason I gave it 9 and not 10 is because there's always room for improvement.
