About this deal

Brass Eye satirises a media far too interested in generating dramatic heat and urgency for its own sake than in shedding light on serious issues.

It's a brilliant satire (no matter which episode or special you view) and is even more pertinent today that when it was first made.

As long as you appreciate that (and don't get faux offended) it really is a genuine good watch.

Next best price is World of Books via eBay - ebay.co.uk/itm…OPY - at £3.49 delivered.

    Does it come with cake?

    Nice name, was just thinking about Slippery Jim the other day.

    The DVD is actually hilarious in itself. There's a "director's commentary" where Chris rounded up a group of homeless people and had them comment on the Cake episode

    This is a fantastic series and I remember The Special about paedophilia was broadcast. It made a lot of the papers that completely missed the point of the episode!

    Yeah, defo, and the way stars of the time, like Phil Collins, appeared on it completely in the dark as to what they had signed up for! Genius..just don't do Cake (edited)

    This stuff will become like dark web contraband eventually with the way the world is going. Time limited deal

    One of the best TV shows ever. Chris Morris is a genius. The Day Today was also amazing.
    Reckon I will score myself some Clarkey cats if there are no bozboz about. Hopefully it won't mess my Shatners Basoon up or I'll puke up my own spine.

    No, but it'll make you cry all the water out of your body.

    Can you imagine the uproar from the perpetually offended if this were made today!?
    Andrew_Houser's avatar
    It did at the time. I remember the papers having a field day of totally missing the point and being offended to the extreme.

    Thanks Op Brass Eye was incredible. Sadly even its maddest satire has been topped by how banal things have become.
    Music magpies packaging is really poor now just thin plastic mail bags. My recent order of blurays, 3 had cracked cases. No doubt because of the thin mail bag and no padding protection. (edited)

    One of best satires of all time, and predicted how much news TV would end becoming.

    What is cake? Well, it has an active ingredient which is a dangerous psychoactive compound known as "dimesmeric andersonphospate". It stimulates the part of the brain called "Shatner's bassoon", and that's the bit of the brain that deals with time perception. So a second feels like a month. Well, it almost sounds like fun, unless you're the Prague schoolboy who walked out into the street, straight in front of a tram. He thought he'd got a month to cross the street...

    This show has content warning on streaming services so just beware:
    Llyllyll's avatar
    And there's the first... Do you understand the concept of satire? I'm sure the adults can manage without a reminder of a "content warning". (edited)

    I think you'll agree, the statistics are shocking.
