its about a woman who has sex with the robot version of her dead boyfreind who she didnt really love as much as she makes out.
she keeps him in the attic and lets her daughter (flash forward a few years at the end of the first episode) bring him cake on his birthday even though he doesnt eat.

created by Charlie Brooker - ironically, i could imagine him doing a 'newswipe-esque' tear down of this kind of a program....

prolly, haven't bothered with the rest (or even the end of the first one) i got to the flash-forward bit, then got distracted by the fluff shedding from our new rug....

Bizarre program, but I kind of liked it really. I do like his screen wipe though, very funny!

Are the ad breaks crammed with "sh*tverts" perchance? ;)

Yup - I've recently become hooked on BBC2's Weekly Wipe - Brooker's Harry Hill-esque running joke about Bob Marley tracks was genius. :)
