Death to 2020 /  Charlie Brooker / 2020

¡Sálvate Marty!

El año 2020 fue sin dudas trágico en muchos aspectos.Parecía que no daba respiro con todos los sucesos que se fueron acumulando.El creador de Black Mirror, busca burlarse de este año de m¡erd@ realizando un mockumentary (docucomedia/falso documental) en donde se realizan entrevistas a varios personajes ficticios que discuten los eventos del año con una mezcla de información verdadera y de sátira. El tema principal es la pandemia del covid-19, particularmente en los Estados Unidos y el Reino Unido. Entre los acontecimientos que se producen a principios de año figuran la última parte de la temporada de incendios de Australia, los discursos sobre el medio ambiente de Greta Thunberg, la renuncia del príncipe Harry y su esposa Meghan a la realeza británica y los premios Óscar del 2020. Se resumen el asesinato de George Floyd y las posteriores protestas en EE.UU. y los manifestantes que retiraron la estatua de Edward Colston en Bristol, Reino Unido.Y por supuesto todo el abordaje sobre el Coronavirus.Con mucho humor negro, ácido y sin filtros, hacemos un repaso sobre los peores hechos del 2020.Como para reírnos un poco de la tragedia, ¿No?

A very long awaited and very highly requested guest right here, as Pip is joined by the creator of Black Mirror and so much more - it’s CHARLIE BROOKER!…but don’t by any means think that Black Mirror is a one man show, as Charlie himself will ensure you know how important Annabel Jones is in the whole creative process! He and Pip get all the way into the whole Black Mirror phenomenon, how it works and what it is to be a showrunner, the rise of Black Mirror in the US, how Charlie is the Drake of TV according to Pip (you’ll enjoy this theory), how the auteur theory is bullshit, presenting the show to Netflix, having an exit strategy in a series and how there are less exits in a film as opposed to an episode, Bandersnatch and the three episode season, his older work including Dead Set, Nathan Barley and the various ‘-Wipes, his Screen Burn column and how haters could improve their hater game by reading some of his columns for how to REALLY dis someone…* Production note: Pip had a backup recorder running, and you’ll hear some of this at the start for a minute or so, but after that the audio is straight from the mics.
