Wish that happened in real life, it'd kick ass. It really would make my day if David Cameron had to do that.

Totally agree, it does kind of put me off him in a way...but self-inflated ego aside, I really enjoyed the show.

That would make my entire week...not sure which irritating member of the royal family I'd rather see kidnapped I hate them all equally.

yeah in a way, to say what he wants to say he's found himself part of the the system, a prepackaged sneer dont get me wrong think brookers great most of time, apart from that quiz show, but he must some time feel like the character in black mirror, he has a cozy life i presume but part of him must feel compromised.as a hater of x factor etc that episode struck a chord, i would have been one the poor bastards cleaning up lol

Originally I thought the glass was to kill the 3 judges. I think if I lived in that time that's what I'd have done. That's how you don't sell out.

The second episode was brilliantly cast. Daniel Kaluuya, who was great in The Fades, played the part of Bing very well. I could empathise with him falling for a pretty innocent girl only to find her fall too easily into something completely different. His descent into near suicide was well acted and I saw a different side to the actor.
