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.
Caminante Nocturno - 2011-08-23
-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.
craptacular - 2011-08-24
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.
themilkshark - 2011-08-24
Also, the "Underling" clip made me stop watching. Seeing children meet cold, adult criticism for entertainment's sake is disturbing.

Robin Kestrel - 2011-08-24
That was a spoof of "The Apprentice", and not an actual show.

You couldn't tell that it was satirical?

Caminante Nocturno - 2011-11-28
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 - 2011-09-14
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.
