Anybody else in the UK what this tonight? I thought it was fucking incredible.
The trailer gives nothing away but if your not in the UK, it's essentially the first in a trilogy looking at mob mentality, techno-paranoia and the way we react to, and spread stories in the modern world. In tonight's episode this case what happens when a Princess is kidnapped and the kidnappers are demanding that the Prime Minister has sex with a pig live on television. The kidnappers know exactly what to do so they can't fake the act and the government don't know how to control the situation because the kidnappers use Youtube and social media to keep the rest of the world informed.
It's incredibly well done, utterly demented satire that'll leave you squirming in your seat but I think that's kinda the point.
The next episode is about how everybody in the world is trapped and the only way to escape is to win the top prize in a talent show, kinda like The Island.
If you can track it down, I'd highly recommend checking it out.
