You Have Been Watching

On Thursday night I Sky Plussed Charlie Brooker's 'You Have Been Watching' and I think it's becoming my favourite show on TV. This week was the final episode in the series and Charlie was joined by Armando Iannucci, Josie Long and Rufus Hound for a crime special.

Charlie, with the assistance of his panel, ripped apart some of the best and worst crime shows that TV has ever seen. Possibly the worst being 'Poochinski' - a crime show about a cop who is reincarnated as a talking dog and solves crimes with his astonished former partner in between licking himself inappropriately.

'Murder She Wrote' was another show that came under scrutiny, but the peak of the comedy was clip of the show's star Angela Landsbury in her 'Positive Life' video. Watching Lansbury rub her wrinkled body with cream just before she discusses sex after menopause whilst having a sensual bath was gut wrenching and hilarious in equal measures.

Mr Brooker's dry humour is comedy gold in my opinion and I laughed out aloud constantly throughout the show. With the series drawing to an end I'm going to have raid the 4OD site and watch the first series.
