Charlie Brooker attempts to explain where it all went wrong and just how wildly the TV and movie ideal differs from life's grim reality.
#2 - Love
Season 1 - Episode 4
Charlie Brooker argues that TV has warped our expectations of romance with a toxic combination of Blind Date and rom-coms. Do 'soulmates' even exist? Warning: this episode contains traces of Dirty Den and suggestive swimwear.
#3 - Progress
Season 1 - Episode 5
From the moon landings to Blake's 7 to CSI: Miami, Charlie Brooker argues that television has warped our relationship with technology. Warning: this episode contains a computerised Simon Cowell and a lady in a silver catsuit.
#4 - Fear
Season 1 - Episode 1
From hysterical public information films to grisly crime dramas, terror spills out of almost every channel. As Charlie explores TV's approach to fear, you won't know whether to laugh or scream. Warning: contains traces of Michael Buerk and a semi-naked lady.
#6 - Knowledge
Season 1 - Episode 6
Charlie Brooker traces how TV's notion of knowledge has changed from bespectacled experts to celebrity presenter drivel.
