Felt stale to me. Too obvious.

Twitter has all the snarks about a month earlier.

Yes I did enjoy seeing Konnie. Haven't seen her in years.

I've always enjoyed Barry ****peas, thought this was a good ep, made me laugh a few times and Cunk had me in stitches with her talk of miniaturising doctors, did kinda feel sorry for the expert having to field these questions!

That doctor was fantastic at not getting pulled into the nonsense. Ali G did it best, no one else should bother.

Ali G was a pale (pun unintentional) imitation of Chris Morris.

I don’t mind Crunk - her character is a bit more than just a faux interviewer - but I do prefer her monologues.

Overall, Wipe was an excellent 45 minutes of TV though, and more insightful than a lot of “serious” commentary.

There's no indication the Crunk piece is 'live' per se. The Prof might as well have been responding to vaguely similar Qs from one of the show's work experience kids. And then by the magic of editing...

I've always thought Brooker was a case of Captain Obvious. If there's an easy joke, by Christ he'll use it.

I saw that prof being interviewed on one of the morning shows and thought at first they had edited in her questions, it was only the stuff about the map on his wall that had me questioning it as I couldn’t recall him being asked about it.

Could quite easily have been on another show or as you say interviewed by someone else from the wipe team.

The internet has certainly killed a lot of this stuff off, as basegreen said earlier. If you wait too long to get your show out now, it can look very behind the curve.

This was decent stuff, but if you watch John Oliver he just blows it out of the water as he's doing the jokes closer to the event.
