Not sure if it's just me, but the festive TV this year has been under par.

Inside No 9 was a bit of a let down. I haven't watched Charlie's 2016 Wipe yet, although I enjoyed Cunk on Christmas. I don't think there's anything of note I've missed; I don't watch Who but I heard the Christmas special was shite.

Never seen No 9 before. Was quite impressed with how the League of Gentlemen have apparently managed to source genuine 1970s cameras. What do you call cameras like that? The ones that produce that kind of lighting smearing effect.

The majority of cameras used for broadcast in that era were orthicon cameras, that used cathode ray tubes to produce images.

Most working examples from the 70s are museum pieces now, I bet it was expensive for them to shoot with one this year.

>Heavy-duty cameras from the 1970s were sourced, dusted down and used for the special Christmas episode of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton’s macabre comedy-horror series Inside No 9, and lighting, microphones, props and costumes from the 70s were hired for the shoot.

>They even asked technicians with experience dating back to pre-HD TV times to come out of retirement and apply their expertise to the project, and the result is both remarkable and at times unsettling.


Heavy-duty ones.

Why couldn't they use normal cameras and then add special effects to make it look old?

Wipe 2016 was good as always but Brooker looked worryingly more haggard than usual. They really packed in a full hour of fast-paced clips and bits, and I could see the decent amount of work going into the writing.

Charlie is doing his best but it's becoming increasingly more difficult for satirists to do their jobs.

Difficult? It's easier than ever, I mean the slew of material out there is more abundant than any other year in recent memory. Or is it difficult because literally everything is so fucking bat shit crazy these days that doing a commentary seems futile?

I suspect he means that everything is so bat shit crazy that it's difficult to satirise because it's already absurd.

It probably doesn't help that I never buy a TV guide, but the BBC don't seem to have done a great job of advertising what's on this Christmas other than Call the Midwife and films like Frozen. I only caught Witness for the Prosecution because I stumbled upon it by chance.

The latter. That's why Charlie stopped doing TV Go Home, as television was becoming so increasingly ridiculous it couldn't be satirised. Naked Attraction, which he featured on this year's Wipe, sounds like something he would have written for TVG ten years ago - 'Six men get their knobs out for Anna Richardson and a tittering woman who discuss if they'd be able to sit on them. Subtitles 888'. Current affairs is becoming much the same.

Holy shit he used the phrase knuckle-dragging racist in regards to Brexit, and I seem to recall the phrase being used here some months ago by someone talking about Brexit vs Scottish referendum. Charlie on .gs confirmed!

Keep at it and he'll be slipping in references that no one but him and three other imageboard users will get. Oddballs belonging to a virtual subculture within a virtual subculture will go apeshit.

That's just something the left bleats out reflexively like one of those pull ring dolls, even while they melt away into irrelevance and their flying monkeys give them a murking.

That's because, like Gary Glitter and Another Rock n Roll Christmas, they've all been Yewtree'd so are now unplayable.

The historian woman on Cunk with the curly hair has been with her on that panel show Sue Perkins did about names, so she's definitely in on it.
