Deadliest Warrior: IRA vs the Taliban

Deadliest Warrior

Charlie Brooker’s You Have Been Watching started on Channel 4 last night. I won’t bother with a review: it was pretty good, I thought, but I think we’re getting a bit meta when we start reviewing shows that review shows.

But it was gratifying to see that he picked up on, Deadliest Warrior, which I nominated at the start of last month for the title of the stupidest TV programme ever. There weren’t any clips available on YouTube at the time, but there are now, since in case you missed it – and it’s still on 4oD if you want to give it a whirl – here’s the match you’ve all been waiting for: the IRA vs the Taliban, handled as tastefully as you’d expect from Spike TV.
