    How TV ruined your life (Part Three - Aspiration)

    Charlie recycles a couple of his points from earlier TV series in this instalment, but that's still cool. He's essentially covering similar ground to that covered in an episode of Screenwipe. But still... it bears up well to the repetition and in a series like this it would look...

    BBC's Biggest Waste

    Thank god Charlie Brooker got a C4 show 'cus he was completely wasted at the bbc. They put his show on BBC4 - like anyone's wathching! And on the off chance bbc4 gets a viewer, they have to stay up 'till silly-o'clock just to watch it. That is, of course, persuming they knew...

    Screenwipe

    Before Newswipe, there was Screenwipe. This is a sort of "best of" episode. Frustrating to watch if you've seen the entire series already, because then there's nothing new. Otherwise... if you've never seen this stuff before... well, it'll probably entertain you...

    How TV ruined your life (Part Two - The life cycle)

    "This week, how TV ruined your life by ruining each individual stage of your life.  Don't say it didn't.  It did."  A great intro to the show - topped only seconds later by using a particularly nasty metaphor involving a horse. Hannah Montana features in this episode.  With...

    How TV ruined your life (Part Four - Love)

    With good timing, this one was televised just after St. Valentine's Day.  This time round, we hear the term "flickering fibbing machine." Brilliant turn of phrase. Sadly (but inevitably, now I come to think of it) Charlie sticks the boot into a couple of adverts that I spoke...

    How TV ruined your life (Part One - Fear)

    Watch this... you'll be glad you did.  Especially if you like TV that isn't particularly uplifting, cheerful and optimistic. Also... if you want to get a glimpse at a film that scared the living **** out of me when I was 14 years old, you'll be particularly interested in the bit...

    Newswipe

    I really hate the way the news is reported. The tabloids tell lies or use deliberately misleading headlines or strategically put quote marks into their stories to make it look like they're saying one thing but back out of actually saying it - which really just makes for more...
