Black Mirror: White Christmas Black Mirror: White Christmas

BLIMEY BUT THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THIS It’s an odd idea, a “Black Mirror” Christmas special – one starring Jon Hamm and Rafe Spall, no less – but Charlie Brooker’s Amicus-style, festive anthology revels in its incongruity. In the story’s first segment, Hamm is a dating guru, dispensing “The Game”-worthy advice to nervous would-be... [Read more of this review]

It’s as dignified as it sounds. It’s odd, contrived and not actually even slightly funny. It’s the best bit in the whole show. It’s... [Read more of this review]

Bear’s Wild Weekend with Ben Stiller Bear’s Wild Weekend with Ben Stiller

Beloved of Gareth Keenan types everywhere, Bear Grylls represents the last true bastion of manliness in this soft, feminised age. Where men get their beards waxed, wear designer clothes and never come closer to nature than lounging in London Fields with the squirrels and the pigeons. Or something like that. Continuing with his tradition of taking... [Read more of this review]
