    "Broken News"

    Does someone still get this show? It used to come on BBC Two and SBS-TV in Australia. Currently, I'm watching it on BBC Entertainment, a set-top only channel in India. Non-stop humour. Luckily it lasted only six episodes, as it would be impossible to maintain that.



    Love the 'stocks' on Aronowitz's channel.

    I could've sworn that I saw this same thread yesterday.

    Or is this just a bad case of deja-vu?

    You can also catch snippets of these episodes on Youtube as well as on the BBC site. Catching the whole episode is tough, though.

    In a few minutes, they'll be showing 'Hijack'. This may be the last episode they'll show.

    EDIT: Finished with it...possibly the strangest and funniest episode they've done...

    It's been almost two months since the show went off air and I already miss it. I've heard of this show called "The Day Today". Has anyone seen it? I heard it's quite similar to this show, but Broken News was then unbelievably funny.

    Katie Tate: "Over to Melanie Bellamy for the day's standing news"

    PLOP!!!

    Richard Pritchard: "Unfortunately, we have no standing news today as our standing newscaster, Melanie Bellamy, has collapsed"

    Josh Cashman: "This is out-rage-ous! Puh-leeeaaze!"

    Phil Curdridge: "Let's not go there"

    Sarah Holt: "Oh, you boys!"
