Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror
I liked it too. It was schizophrenic, but the good parts could be very good while the bad parts were rarely ever that bad, and it improved over the course of its run. But I don't see a need for it to be live, they could film it earlier in the day and edit out some of the less-than-slick bits, like The Daily Show does, and it would be pretty much the same show. It did well on 4OD, apparently, so a lot of the people that watched it weren't watching it live anyway.
Well the live thing worked out when the Libya thing happened, and it differentiated it from Mock the Week, Have I got news for you, Stand up for the week, etc.
And their call for war on poverty is a smokescreen we don't need, cos the only war worth fighting for is a war on their pure greed. : Acid Country - Paul Heaton
