Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror
White bear was painfully obvious though. see, we're as bad as she is, do you see, in fact we're worse! But it was still loads better than Waldo...waldo wouldn't have been out of place in the 1st season of Torchwood...although it would have dragged the general quality down.
Hopefully if there's a 3rd series Brooker won't write them all...
Waldo was apparently based on something they did back in Nathan Barley. I thought it was a fairly decent point though about how a good message can be hijacked by popularity then that popularity can be hijacked itself. And how voting for gimmicks and protest votes can do more harm than good (taken to stupid extremes of course) unless you're voting for someone who actually has decent policies.
White Bear left plenty of questions but that's the trouble with anthologies, you don't get to dig deeper in to the hows and whys.
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
