here is his advance review of 2009, as printed in the Observer, 28/12/08:
"Yes, in many ways, this year has meant the End of Innocence, if by "innocence" you mean the ITV1 prime-time courtroom drama starring Ross Kemp as a human rights lawyer who's travelled back from the future and Graham Norton as the voice of his robot. As we all remember, the troubled network dumped the last two episodes to the middle of the night and replaced it with exclusive footage of Michael Jackson's autopsy. Fascinating viewing."
the only question is why? how would Mitchell stand to benefit from killing Jackson? i think there's something else here, something we're not seeing yet.
