Breaking Bad is probably one of the most talked-about television shows ever. Maybe in the olden-days people talked about shows like the final episode of M.A.S.H. but we'll never know because there are no blogs, or tweets, no Facebook links to clips or mash-ups on YouTube to prove it.
With the proliferation of media and explosion of user-generated content on free social platforms it gets harder for legacy media to deliver content that is compelling, especially when it is covering ground so ably canvassed by blogs, FB posts etc.
Charlie Brooker is a British media commentator and satirist whose take on television criticism is the best since Clive James went off the boil over 20 years ago. He may be the last gasp of the genre (which in New Zealand included Eating Media Lunch). This segment cleverly reframes criticism and social insight and it's funny…not content to be commentary it becomes shareable content in its own right.
