Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror

^I was guessing viagra, they also had porn for him to watch as well. I loved the comment that he was recommended not to go too quickly lest it be assumed he was enjoying it!!

I'll be honest here, I've never been a huge fan of Brookers, he seems to get healded a genius a lot of the time for merely stating the obvious, and this was no different really (Twitter is bad and we're all complicit in things). that being said, and despite myriad plot holes (turner prize winning artist taking down two close protection officers and out IT'ing MI5 and co for starters) it was much better than I was expecting it to be, I was riveted to it and disturbingly it does stay with you after the fact, and I liked that Brooker made the PM a sympathetic character.

Good solid viewing, but I can't help feeling it needed something else to rise it about the obvious. that final shot of Kinnear at the bottom of the stairs was really poignient though.
