The BBC spectacularly blew what was their one chance to really celebrate this British-born phenomenon.
I totally agree. It was bloody awful. The fact that it basically cast Jack Thompson as the hero of the piece just made it all the more annoying.
For the most part, Jack Thompson was cast as a religious nutcase on a personal crusade against something he doesn't understand in my opinion. The only time he was allowed to look human was when taking to his son. Houser was definitely the 'hero' he was just portrayed as a flawed genius. It wasn't the best show in the world but is was pretty entertaining. Not sure really what all the fuss is about.
Didn't expect it to be good to be honest. BBC are going downhill.
If it wasn't for Doctor Who, Sherlock and a few other shows, I'd have cancelled my TV licence already!
I really do not understand why anyone enjoys doctor who but each to their own. After top gear collapsed that was me done
You would get fined £1000, you have to pay the licence in the UK if: "you use a TV, computer, tablet, mobile phone, games console, digital box, DVD/VHS recorder or any other device."
The beeb has been going down the crapper for a while now mate. The only time I ever watch it is for the Rugby League highlights and the challenge cup. The rest of it is pretty much garbage.
Don't forget Match of the Day. That's still good, if you like a real sport. lol, just kidding!
@IrishStoner. You only have to pay it if you actually watch TV on those devices. If you can prove you don't you don't have to pay, it's all on the Gov.uk website.
When it comes to British gaming TV content forget the BBC, Channel 4 did an excellent docu called "How Videogames Changed the World" with Charlie Brooker, I highly recommend it to anyone who likes gaming. here is a low quality link: https://vimeo.com/86920129 I'm sure there's a better quality version somewhere out there.
