it bloody better be
I don't watch Screenwipe to listen to a bunch of people I don't care about talking. I just want Brooker to tear apart shitty tv shows :(
Harry Hill cracks me up every week
loved it this week when he ripped into Eoghan's face when the phone numbers online. Literally couldn't stop laughing when he did it during the xfactor too.
this thing about a metal band in baghdad is much better.
not much laughs in this, just indulgent shit about writing.
i give in ... wheres the remote
some version of Heavy Metal Baghdad has been on BBC1 and i've been stuck with Brooker and his mates being smug and boring about something :(
Most of those writers were either insufferable pricks or really boring. The insight offered was relatively minimal.
don't write shit dialogue
that was about as insightful as it got before i gave up
A lot of that was well worth listening to. To be fair these guys have been there and done it, y'know?
Russell T Davies and Paul Abbot are geniuses so I could listen to them talk all day.
I still don't understand how the IT Crowd can be so shit with Gramham Lineham's track record.
...I think it if it was broadcast as a separate one-off special I wouldn't have minded but it really shouldn't have been part of the Screenwipe series.
Ah well :(
If you switched off you missed Russell T Davies really wonderful polite rant about people who claim to be writers at the end. It basically went:
"If you never finished anything fuck off you're not a writer."
but like enough only to make me look up from my knitting about four times. I didn't laugh once :(
TV Burp was much better than Screenwipe this week.
I've gone off Charlie Brooker a bit. And in turn, Screenwipe.
Go take a powder - the lot of you!
and its a fucking borathon with that prick who writes doctor who.
I had no idea the people behind Peep Show also did 'Days Like These' - jesus
My Parents Are Aliens
Why all the Brooker hate?...
it better be as bad as you are all saying or i will be very annoyed
