    ^ Brooker has already had a major hand in numerous very well thought of comedies though, Brass Eye and Nathan Barley he wrote for, and the absolutely brilliant Dead Set was all his creation. He's pretty well established as a creative now.

    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.

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

    So is that a cop or a comedy show?

    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. :shrug:

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

    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...:)
