Just watched it, enjoyed it immensely. A world without Barry Shitpeas and Philomena Cunk is a world without sunshine.

Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

Just caught weekly screenwipes, briliant stuff as usual, new stuff was Limmy, and i am glad to see somebody else, other than myself, worried about the state of the railings round Victoria park, and Philomena Cunk's insight into what is time could have easily passed for a horizion special.

Roll on next week.

Ha, all that was missing was Brian Cox.

Brian Cox and Philomena Cunk, sounds like the charactor names from a carry on movie.

Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

Looks like Black Mirror is going to be a couple of episodes at different times rather than a series of three.

Speaking to Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6Music this morning, Brooker said that a year after the broadcast of series two of Zeppotron’s dystopian drama, viewers could expect more episodes, but not as a conventional three-part series.
“There’s definitely going to be more,” he said. “There’s going to be some and then there’s going to be some more – you’ll get one helping and then there’ll be another helping.”
Brooker added that there had been, “a hitch, a slight delay” in developing series three, partly due to the fact that one of his ideas for a futuristic technological scenario occured in reality.
“The frustrating thing about a show like that is that quite often, the things you’re writing about then come true. I’ve noticed that one idea I had, there’s something very similar that seems to have happened in real life,” he said.

Oh, i wonder what that will turn out to be, Google privacy issue, Wiki leaks, Kinect 2 spying, private space travel...so many things it could be.

My fave is still
Thing Discusser.

I'll have to check out this new series. Didn't care much for the first Weekly Wipes, honestly. Charlie doesn't seem as funny since he got married.

Re: Charlie Brooker's Wiping again

He used to be much angrier, crap television shows and shoddy journalism genuinely appeared to make him upset. In recent years he has transitioned into a more world-weary persona, which I still find funny, but I must admit that I laugh less heartily than I used to.

Speaking of Brian Cox, he appeared to make a factual error in episode two of the latest series of Seeing Stars by stating that Mercury's rotation period is tidally locked to be the same as its year. In fact, it rotates exactly three times for every two revolutions. I'm glad to see the Prof is human after all or maybe I misunderstood his burbling.

As for Brooker, as he's now part of the entertainment industry, so I guess he might blunt his barbs in case it affects his prospects for advancement and income. Or he's just gotten older and more boring like the rest of us.
