Broken News is one of the most poignant satires ever produced, and a must-see for anyone who has ever sat in front of the evening news more than once a week.
If you were zapping between channels and happened to stumble upon Broken News, there's a good chance it would take you some time to realize it wasn't a real news broadcast -- and therein lies its power: the creators of this show have managed to mimic and emulate the techniques of modern TV news broadcast, while exaggerating every single one of its manipulative, intelligence-insulting aspects and shallow, shameless "journalism".
The mostly-unknown but highly professional cast deliver their lines with utter seriousness, while spouting complete gibberish not unlike that which you might encounter on any 24-hour news channel or the evening headlines. They are constantly surrounded by "experts" and fearmongers, hilarious news tickers and headlines, useless audience feedback, impossible survey results, blatant delay tactics, sensationalism and disinformation, and everything else that is wrong with televised journalism today taken up to 11.
This show only has 6 episodes (comprising a single British "season"), but each of them is simply side-splittingly funny, and a definite must-see. And with the DVD, you can watch again and again to try and spot details you've missed on previous viewings - hidden in plain sight in pretty much every single shot.
