Ever since 2006, Charlie Brooker has been doing a nasty, cynical, and v funny end-of-the-year wrap-up called Charlie Brooker’s Wipe. He never finds much cause for celebration.
Brooker is the creator of Dead Set, a five-episode series about what happens to the people locked in the Big Brother house when the zombie apocalypse hits Britain. He also wrote Black Mirror, an anthology series now available on Netflix, that takes a dark look at the day after tomorrow, and A Touch of Cloth, an Airplane-like satire of TV cop shows with “damaged” heroes.

D.I. Anne Oldman: “Why did you laugh when your wife died?”
Yeah, he’s sorta twisted.
Here’s Charlie Brooker’s 2016 Wipe. It’s Anglocentric, but the US doesn’t escape Brooker’s attention,
