    Yeah, but I'm saying it can be recorded live then edited. That's different to broadcasting live.

    All the "live" American shows are done this way. That's how the Daily Show is done, Saturday Night Live, Letterman, Jay Leno etc etc.

    You still get that live feel without all the painful stuff that goes with it.

    I think they like reacting the breaking news etc though. If they become less reliant on news, then yeah, makes sense

    If they get rid of anything it should be the audience. Bunch of half-wits.

    I don't think you guys get me. The shows i'm talking about are recorded an hour or two before they're broadcast, and are full of topical stories and such.

    The Tem O'Clock show is a total rip off of The Daily Show which is based on the news that day. It is however not broadcast live.

    How is it a rip off? The formats, other than them both being (sort of) live and topical, are completely different.

    I think they're quite similar but I don't really care enough to debate it.

    The point is if that slightly pre-recorded live then edited is a better way to do topical "live" TV shows.

    I agree. They should edit out Laverne.

    I dunno, I quite like it being proper live. It's more fun to watch if something might go wrong.

    Also, Laverne needs to stay, but they could put her in a more revealing dress perhaps?

    If this program was recorded as live but then edited, as opposed to being broadcast live, then it would be a brilliant show. Thatís how they do all the shows this is based on like The Daily Show and Letterman and all that.

    The reason the show doesnít work is because the fact that itís broadcast gives it a nervous energy, and you can see all the cracks and all the fuck ups. Plus all the bits that donít quite work get left in there. They should record an hour or so, trim out the shit, and put out a nice polished professional show.
    The weakest parts were consistently Laverne's, which were generally pre-recorded. So nerr.

    I think the show could benefit from being shorter but it needs to lose 2 of the presenters -- preferably Carr and Laverne. Some of Laverne's segments actually made me cringe last time.

    If it was just Brooker and and Webb it'll be "The 10 O'clock Middle Class Middle Aged Male Guardian Columnist Ranting with Impotent Rage Show" so I suppose that needs to *some* kind of counter balance.

    Back again, tonight. At 10 (unsurprisingly).

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    In patches good, as usual. Not all good though. (terrible freed terrorist clip). Couple of nice rants, especially Jimmy's early Terry tirade. Some interesting discussion.

    I think it takes them a while to get into their stride.

    Still better than most things available.

    It was great until I read bits further up this page. :(

    Well, it didn't have me in fits but it had me laughing a lot. Star of the show is Mitchell. He is amazingly sharp if the stuff he comes up with in conversation is off the cuff. In any case he does it in such a way that I can't tell. Carr, as usual, can't quite do his stints live smoothly enough, Brooker either swings and lands solid blows or misses entirely. Laverne, funny enough, had the smoothest bit to camera this time around, in conversations she seems to act as linker and mediator rather than contributor which is necessary given the others tendency to go off on one, and I will now patronise her by saying she blows warm breezes through my foggy heart when she's on.

    It's a bit of a guilty pleasure, four comics putting the world to rights for us, we know that the show won't change a damn thing in the world, but taken as a bit of fun wit and wisdom midweek and nothing more, it's a damn good show.

    I still don't know why they don't just record it so they get every piece spot on. Personally I find live TV a bit uncomfortable to watch.

    Well I loved this the first time round but found the first episode of the new series rather disappointing. Hoping they improve the rest of the series.

    First half report.

    High points: Charlie Brooker rant-rapping about The Sun. And pouring scorn on Cameron's gaming habits.

    Low points: Jimmy Carr. The Abu Qatada skit. Again.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    That was quite magnificent, the rest of the show though was a bit 'meh'.

    What happened to Mitchell's scornful monologues? They were the best bit of the last series.

    Maybe he's using them all up on his Soapbox thing?
