So who watched 2011 Wipe? Really made me laugh, Charlie at his surly best.

iPlayer link for those in the UK who missed it... Charlie says the best way to get more is to watch on iPlayer because logged views will prove the popularity.
Made me smile hope we get one in 2012, love to see how he reacts to the world not ending.

Probably with Anger, as it should be.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought Christmas TV was shit this year.

Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror

Channel 4 have given Black Mirror a second series.

From Digital Spy

Charlie Brooker's critically-acclaimed dark comedy series Black Mirror will return in 2013 with a second series, it has been confirmed.

Channel 4 will air three more 60-minute dramas from Brooker, who will begin filming next month.

...

"Half of the things in the first run of Black Mirror seem to be on the verge of coming true. They've got prisoners in Brazilian prisons pedalling on exercise bikes to reduce their sentences (not entirely dissimilar to the episode '15 Million Merits') and Google Glass looks like copyright infringement as far as 'The Entire History of You' is concerned," said Brooker.

"Thankfully no-one carried out a hideous form of blackmail involving a pig. Anyway, if the stories from the second run start coming true then we're REALLY in trouble."

Murderous iPhones. Smart TVs that are actually smart and take over the world and MP3 players that reprogramme our mind in your sleep.

Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror

So is that a cop or a comedy show?

Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror

It's Charlie Brooker's take on a cop show. So a parody of a cop show I guess.

The humour appears very similar to Police Squad/The Naked Gun, but it just seems off somehow.

Well it's entirely lacking of context. Though I admit it made me laugh when the chase was going on.

Re: Charlie Brooker Black Mirror

Really obvious stuff, looked like it should have been made 20 years ago and starred Nicholas Lyndhurst...

But, good news BM is getting a second series. I hope it's a little more consistent and, dare I say it, a little more hopeful, just sometimes...
