Charlie Brooker & Screenwipe

I recently discovered Charlie Brooker, a UK based television and media critic. In addition to writing for The Gaurdian he hosts a program called Screenwipe which is part television review and part media theory/criticism.

This following video is a piece on aspirational television. The are some parallels between his discussion of television and my theories on Celebrity Shamanism and Gossip Mythology.

Screenwipe, Season 1, Episode 1
