Charlie Brooker and his weekly wipe.

Fuck me this is shite. As is CB's Guardian column. Perhaps he's saving all his acerbic talent for Black Mirror, or the next series of 10 oclock live.

The bit where Charlie reads out some opinions from the internet is quite good. Who knew that there are some fuckwits about?

Konnie Huq has sucked all the humour out of him.

I thought it was good, but then I never was one for refreshingly original opinions

The 'how to survive a high school massacre' section is pretty astonishing. If only Charlie were to dial down the satires. What? Oh.

Lucky bastard.

Charlie's not so bad, but wosname Shitpeas and the other two are painfully unfunny.

I enjoyed it. I thought it was funny.

"Barry Shitpeas" is a great name though. I use it on many, many internet accounts.

Dear Mr Shitpeas,

I like Philomena Cunk (or whatever her name is) because she sounds exactly like one of my co-workers describing what she watched on TV last night.

Which I guess is the point. But it's uncanny.

Barry Shitpeas is a parody of the dimwitted z-listers they get to comment on nostalgia programmes.

'Yeah, spacehoppers, they were like, well brilliant and stuff.'

clench - 05 Feb 2013 10:41:54 (#12 of 642)

well, yes, and there's nothing wrong with the concept. its the clueless implementation that is the problem.

clench - 05 Feb 2013 10:43:03 (#13 of 642)

rather like the bits where it cuts to Charlie pretending to wank, as a satirical comment on the clip that has just been shown.

someone should tell him. mind you perhaps they have, as I haven't seen him pretend to wank lately.

At least they've ditched that 'poet' with the Gervaising.

I don't care for any of the non-Charlie elements of this at all, really. I like Charlie Brooker, behind a desk, talking about the news. I like it very much, in fact.

MorrisMitchener - 05 Feb 2013 14:08:05 (#17 of 642)

I missed the start but it seemed to be Brooker business as usual to me. Liking Shitpeas and Clunk very much. There could be a Nathan Barley-type spin-off show there.

meepmeep - 05 Feb 2013 14:08:46 (#18 of 642)

Her description of Africa was great.

clench - 05 Feb 2013 14:20:59 (#19 of 642)

Jesus wept.
