Essential viewing for any consumer
5 June 2015 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Essential viewing for any consumer.

From the team who brought you CNNN and The Chaser's War on Everything comes a consumer affairs program that somebody really should have made a long time ago. Details your rights as a consumer, especially in certain circumstances, and the tricks product manufacturers and marketers use to get you to buy their product and/or increase their margins.

All this done in a very humorous way (which you would expect, considering the previous stuff they have worked on) and with strong hint of subversion. It is worth watching just for the skits alone.

Incredibly edifying and funny.
