You Have Been Watching, Channel 4

Did we like it?As a TV review site we enjoy programmes about our favourite subject. Charlie Brooker rarely puts a foot wrong but this "quiz" style series didn't seem to work.
What was good about it?
• Two Words - Charlie Brooker
• Charlie's view on Piers Morgan's upcoming interview with Jodan: Frost/Nixon for dummies.
• Charlie's review of BBC1's One Show which hit every mark and made us really wish we were watching Screenwipe instead of this odd new series.
The clips from American manly TV Deadliest Warrior which were so bad they raised the only true of the smile of the programme.

What was bad about it?
• Perhaps our expectations were too high for this but it just felt thrown together with very little point. Did we really care who won the game? Of course not! Just review the series!
• Jamelia Why? The woman is the Jaws shark of these kind of programmes; just when you thought it was safe to turn on the telly she pops up again
• The quiz element wasn't necessary as it added nothing to the pace of the show. We'd have preferred a proper discussion about each programme featured, especially as Rufus Hound and Riochard Herring had plenty of amusing things to say.
• We couldn't help but think that if Charlie Brooker didn't host this there's a massive chance he'd rip it to shreads on Screenwipe.
