I had been itching to watch Charlie Brooker’s Dead Set - in which the Big Brother house becomes a fortress during a zombie outbreak – but now that itch has become… a more maddening itch? A rash? Hives? I don’t know, but after watching this insightful, hilarious and true clip from Brooker’s current show Newswipe, I need to seek out all of his other stuff ASAP. In this clip Brooker completely deconstructs a news segment, and he gets it dead right.
In the meantime: someone please release Dead Set in Region 1. I don’t have my Region 2 player anymore!
