Screenwipe seasons 1-2

Fun to watch British comedians tear apart TV shows I don’t watch while praising The Wire and Deadwood to the heavens. I tuned in because of a connection between this series and documentarian Adam Curtis in later seasons, but now I’ll have to hold off watching those later seasons for fear of catching Wire spoilers in the raving recaps. The show kind of works as a best-and-worst-of television. Now I can feel more connected to society, because I know what Deal Or No Deal? is, as well as major differences between the US and UK versions. Mainly, though, it’s worth watching because writer/host Charlie Brooker is a funny guy, charismatic despite his sociopathic posturing.
