An episode of Charlie Brooker's Newswipe featuring "the fair and balanced newsmen of dystopian future, sci-fi, satirical, shouty porn sledgehammer channel Fox News". I love the Bill O'Reilly Inside Edition outtake: "I don't what that means, 'to play us out', what does that mean?...We'll do it live!... DO IT LIVE!".:laughing:

' Foyle's War ' : an excellent BBC production of a police superintendent working mostly in the city and area of Hastings during WWII . Much in the style of typical English 'who done its '- a la 'Poirot '- this series has the complexities of the war going on and surprising viewers that not all were in it together , contrary to popular belief. As well , each episode coming in at 90+ minutes is like a mini movie .

Michael Kitchen as D.S.I Foyle and the rest of the cast are superb . Beautiful scenes of the English countryside , old manners as well as class prejudices are a treat to watch . There is xenophobia , greed , pettiness, and the exploitations of secrecy 'in our best interests ' mentality which often occurs in wartime .

A classic British mystery series with a twist ...a 9/10

The possibilities boggle the mind...
