Thanks for posting those articles, I can see both points of view. I have a preference or maybe it's nostalgia for the slow zombie but thought the fast ones worked in Dead Set, they added to the tension and the fact that they were half hour eps kept the pace going. I've now bought the DVD so when I watch the 2 1/2 hours together I might long for the lumbering zombie of old.

I love Charlie Brooker. I crush on him so hard. I love this argument - it's got great heart behind it. Simon and Charlie obviously really respect each other.

Yeah. It's nice that. And they both have valid points, argued well. :)

I have to admit that although I've heard of him I know nothing about Charlie but if he can make programmes like this I like him!

Charlie Brooker does a show on BBC Four called Screenwipe. It's not currently playing but I'm sure someone will say when it's back on. I think there's some of it on Youtube.

I only have terrestrial but I suppose I can look on Youtube if I get an overwhelming desire to do so.

Thanks hun. I will check him out. I think I read something that was posted before. I'd like to see him in live action ( :lol: ) so if I get chance I'll check out youtube.
