Screenwipe Returns

Recommended Posts

Did anyone watch?

Charlton Brooker, I love you more and more each day! :D

Yeah. The Ross/Brand bit was shit. Then when he went back to the couch and started on the whole Britannia High thing he hit the ground running and it was very entertaining.

A bit Hit or Miss but still an enjoyable watch. :up:

Ahhhh, I forgot. There better be a repeat, I almost wept with joy when the advert came on for the new series and I still forgot, I hate myself.

It's repeated on Friday night, 11pm ish.

If he made 15 minute episodes and cut out all the non-Brooker parts (get fucked Lisa Tarbuck) then it would be superb. Instead, it's just pretty good because it's full of filler.

The early series were brilliant as it was just him moaning about TV and calling everyone a prick.

I like that in his Guardian article yesterday he said that he's freaked out by Carly Zucker 'cos her name sounds like a baby trying to say his name. Made me laugh out loud.

Just watching last night's Advertising episode on the Sky+...

It's actually quite informative. So much so, that I'm thinking about using this in my Business Management class next week. May have to make up some sort of disclaimer form for the students to sign though...

Argh! So good last night! Was waiting with antici...pation as I knew Linehan'd be on. He and Russell T Davies were excellent. Inspiring, even. Must get arse in gear and continue procrastination until I need to write :D

I defy anyone to watch this week's episode and not want to write a script. Missed the sardonic charlie but still a great bit of TV. I love the fact he's gotten a cult following now and can do whatever the fuck he wants with his show. i.e. a script writer's orgy.

Last nights episode was awesome, Konnie Huq was ace in it.

'NYYYAAAAAAAAA!... What did you shake for"

"Your hat knocked my head"

"We haven't just pissed on a hill, we've pissed on the viewer's face, directly in their eyes"

However I thought the previous episode, the writer's special, was pretty pants. I wouldn't have minded it if a) it had been done as a one off special, not a screenwipe episode and b) the writers had anything interesting to say.

He couldn't have already guessed that most sit-com writers spend their days drinking tea, playing solitaire and not doing as much writing as they would like.

And Graham Linehan saying that he just looks on the internet for funny stuff he can steal.. :down:
