Brooker in fine form
cheers for this, i missed the top three when watching it on monday.
1. you see where I'm going with this
2. Because he;s funny
3. Thats the whole point.
because hes such a cunt
im kinda indifferent towards clarkson but i like brooker
he's proclaimed his love for deadwood and the wire and a few other older programs. so what if he picks on easy targets? he's the only person on tv who goes anywhere near describing how television actually works (except maybe harry hill). and he doesn't think he's superior to it, he recognises that he's part of the whole system.
yes he seems smug, yes he's not always funny, yes he comes across as a bit of a tit. but its the only recent program thats made me laugh out loud numerous times per episode. and his criticisms, though often obvious, are consistently right on the mark and put forward perfectly.
Go with it.
for the sake of renault lady. yum.
the first one was supposed to be coy and almost succeeded. The second one is supposed to be tit-rubbed-in-face obvious and is.
NOooo renault lady, keep away from him, and come over here, and i will show you va va voom.....
someone posted last week, that wasn't funny at all. Is the rest of the program like that?
it gets worse by the week
but the others are great. He's funny and has a good presnting style. Fuck da h8rs
swearing lots is not comedy.
A really shit, really unfunny rip off of TV Burp? And on BBC4 as well. For shame.
We've got alcxxk! And the top ten... Is probably the worst thing on screenwipe so far.
a show about a baby that could read minds. Just half an hour of it going "Goo goo gah!" and a load of adults saying "OH MY GOD! HE'S READING OUR MINDS!!!!!!!" It was good, but I couldn't help but feel a little disappointed.
of cold-reading ive ever seen.
And I quite like Brooker.
However, this entire series has produced very few smiles. Very few indeed.
I've actually grown to like Brooker more with this series and had a YouTube Screenwipe blowout last weekend. Although this bit was very weak, yes. The bit about editing reality shows was better.
I want to join the 'Charlie Brooker is rubbish' club please.
He IS basically Jeremy Clarkson, or more if Jeremy Clarkson was allowed to swear, and talked about stuff other than cars.
or, at least top gear is quite funny.
but only to the extent that he's wrong about everything, ensuring irony value.
only encountering him on top gear.
Clarksons death would reduce global warming by at least 20%
ie defending games
on what he likes and what is shit though, well in my opinion anyway
he agrees with me, therefore i like him.
Also gives me opinions I can pass off as my own. Saves precious thinking time.
but his presenting style and tone and emphasis is just a little too much like Chris Morris. And he does substitute the word "fucker" or "cunt" where Morris would have said "roboplegic wrongcock" or "bunty man", making him a bit "shit" by comparison
