Calling all Charlie Brooker fans

our finest TV critic gets his own show 'Charlie Brooker's Screen Wipe'

it starts tonight on BBC4 at 10.30pm - sounds like a 'Harry Hill Burp' type of thing

if it's anything like his newspaper column, could be great

Missed this so had to get it via other means and it was ace! Not only informative (the breakdown of the cost of making the tv show) but very, very, very funny indeed. SKY+'d!

Have just finished watching this and what a brilliant show. I didn't know who he was so thankfully had no preconceptions, looking forward to the next

Saw some of it last week was good. Second episode on tonight. I think he "investigates" Deal Or No Deal

If you didn't catch his Guardian article about it then go google for it. One of the funniest things I have read in recent times.

It is fantastically funny, shame it is so hidden away. I only caught it by chance

Yeah I had seen that, very funny. Makes me laugh reading it again.

But missed the prog tonight will have to try record it on Saturday. Though I think it had a bit about 24 and I still havent watched the last series yet so might have to fast forward most of it.

Yeah - anyone who hasn't seen up to and including Season 5 of 24 should definately not watch the 24 section. Very spoilerific.

Caught the first ep of this last night after Sky+ing it. Very good - enjoyed it immensely. Have series linked.

Loved the bits where he abused the producers/staff (throwing money, hitting them round the head, etc)!!

Tell me about it! I wasn't quick enough with the remote, and my girlfriend almost burst into tears when she thought...

A colleague who's been watching the new series has let me know that he's not, and I've calmed her down.

good show

only gripe is that a lot of what he says has been lifted pretty much 'word for word' from his column in The Guide

got to agree with him with 'Hi-Five' being best morning show

for anyone thats interested, his book 'Screen Burn' (collection of his TV rants) is a cracking read

Saw last week he was doing 24 and watched the 6 episodes on my Sky+ during the week, just in case, and just as well.

I recognise the theme music - is it Grandaddy?
