TV didn't ruin my life. What ruined my life is the people who refuse to make me a billionaire celebrity despite how hilarious and sexy I am.

I'm not quite sure who those people are, but they're huge jerks.
Oh, also, I love his rant about children so damn much I want to bronze it somehow.

Sounds like somebody has never heard of the Argentine Duvet-Changer Kestral.
Hilariously depressing!
This whole series is brilliant.
I didn't think the WHOLE series was brilliant. I think he could have effectively made his point in like 3 episodes or one long single documentary/editorial. The last couple episodes seemed forced.

Same. This whole series was in an uncomfortable spot where it was too opinionated to work as a science piece but threw too much (often bad) science in it to look past its flaws and enjoy it as an opinion piece. Dude needs an editor or a researcher.

You guys are just jealous that YOU'RE not famous.

That was the best. I want one on the Internet.

Only losers spend all their time on the internet!

This was way better than I remembered. What an awesome program.
This is horrible, but I really want to watch Style by Jury.

I have never heard of any of these reality shows but god damn was Freddie annoying.
"I haven't seen that much money being mindlessly thrown at a shuddering ass since CNN hired Piers Morgan."

A thousand stars.

-5 stars for being half Denis Leary, half the male Sarah Haskins, +5 stars for the Family Fare host. I wouldn't mind a roll in the offal with her.
I think TV has caused problems well beyond this single, specific one involving unrealistic expectations. It's the most destructive invention in history and I just wasted 30 minutes watching some of its programming.

5 stars for evil on evil.
For a show thinking that making an overweight person model for a figure drawing class will make them feel better about their looks. Another five for the jury show.
five easy stars for condensing all of my pessimistic views on modern-life into one half hour segment. our lives really are completely, and utterly meaningless.
British TV is even worse than ours.
Also, the "Underling" clip made me stop watching. Seeing children meet cold, adult criticism for entertainment's sake is disturbing.

Robin Kestrel
That was a spoof of "The Apprentice", and not an actual show.

You couldn't tell that it was satirical?

Caminante Nocturno
You can't really blame him for not being able to tell.

Get in my favorites NOW!
"Not so much a show as an orchestrated smear campaign against the human race in general."
That guy
Episodes 4, 5, 6 are also great.

Weird coincidence, I just saw this yesterday, toyed with the idea of submitting it. Mostly worthwhile for the old clips of British TV.
