Ep 319: Channel 4 Comedy Fortnight

In the lead-up to the Paralympics, the UK’s Channel 4 presented a fortnight of comedy including some one-offs, some brand new work from geniuses you might be familiar with and some fantastic older comedy from their collection. We take a look at everything we can possibly think of to do with this.

Also, are you sick of us talking about The Newswroom? No? Excellent. Because there’s more of that.

    Damn, it’s annoying to see Sorkin get retrospective kudos, especially for that awful Giffords episode. While some may have seen it as addressing the issue of fact-checking over scoops, I saw it more as exploiting a real tragedy to make Sorkin’s alter-ego, Will McAvoy, look like a genius hot-shot.

    This whole “cover real events in hindsight as if they were breaking news” thing is just bullshit.
