Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror

Well, that was the most poignant pig-fucking scene I've watched all year.

It was good, not great. I didn't like the reliance on polling in the decision to fuck the pig, there just wasn't enough time to get reliable results, especially from an internet poll that would be ripe for abuse from the likes of 4chan. Public opinion apparently shifted in the space of half an hour, a professional polling company would probably take double that time just to formulate the right wording for the question.

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
It's not that he states the obvious, it's that he states it in a very blunt, aggressive manner that happens to be hysterical at the best of times. I don't consider him a genius, but I have way more time for him than anyone else in the media.
