    That sounds like it could be a joke, but some of the things I've heard since make a lot more sense now. Thanks mrpon!

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    I really didn't think I'd enjoy that as much as I did, given I felt Dead Set was a bit disappointing, but that was a very well put together program. Next weeks looks great too!

    Thoroughly enjoyed that.. pretty dark at the end. Did they pay to advertise this on itv? I saw an ad for it near the end of xfactor tonight. Considering next weeks EP, that's a smart move.

    Meh, it was pretty good, well acted and decently shot, but the story was a bit direct - the only real twist being at the end. Don't get me wrong - it's easily the best thing on tonight, but after all the build up (including on Radio 4 no less) I was kind of expecting a more twisted tale.

    Still looking forward to next week's. Lets hope it hits the mark better than Peter Kay's X-Factor piss take.

    Edit: Spoilered for those watching +1/OD

    That was really rather good. Very Tales of the Unexpected.

    Doesn't get much more twisted than a pigs ;)

    Would be a lot easier if that happened to Hameron tomorrow, he could just fuck himself.

    I'm hoping that's the weakest of the three, was good but felt a bit stretched to fit the time, like an extended Blue Jam sketch. The artist bit at the start was quite thrown away too.

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

    It was better than I thought it would be, but not as good as all the hype would suggest it should be. It reminded me of Saw.

    Very good, very to the point as well. But god the world in that man's head is dark.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Yeah, really liked it. Pretty much made the same point as the artist was making. Sure, just another vehicle for Brooker's misanthropy, but hey, I see his point.

    Thought it was pretty good. Well acted and good production values. The dialog was a bit clunky but then subtlety has never really been Brooker's thing.

    Charlie Brooker is no Rod Serling that's for sure, it was alright but the payoff was weak and the first thing that should have been said but wasn't at all is "we don't negotiate with terrorists."

    Hmm, just looked this up on wikipedia and it seems this is the only episode of the three officially entirely written by Brooker. The next ep is being supposedly cowritten by him and Konnie bloody Huq (although I suspect that's just the old tart namechecking his 'muse'). At least the final episode's written by Jesse Armstrong who cocreated Peep Show and was one of the writers on The Thick of It.

    Thought that was bloody great, best bit of telly I've watched in a while. Shame there's only three episodes though, assuming the next two are as good...

    My only beef was the post credit sequence. I think it would've been more unsettling without it.
  • Deleted user 4 December 2011 23:57:27
    Awesome - very conflicting watch. Why was mal expecting a twist?

    Been a good year or two since I've seen anything on the box worth watching, more risks please

    That was good. I'm satisfied I've just watched a man doing that.
