    I thought I'd throw GAOT into the headline (GAOT includes The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Deadwood, The Americans, Masters of Sex, Mr Robot etc). Or rather, it's the Second Golden Age of Television (apparently the first was in the 1950s).

    In any case, this is the best new show I've seen this year (other than Mr Robot and Bojack Horseman). It's called Unreal, it's a dark drama/comedy which is essentially about what goes into making the sausage that is reality TV. Most people don't really understand just how contrived reality TV is. I have to say Unreal really is an exceptional show. The trailer doesn't do it justice, it's incredibly dark and affecting. If you've seen Nightcrawler and you liked it, then you'll like this.

    Oh and for good measure, I'll throw in this brilliant section from Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe which shows how contrived reality TV is
