    The Guardian seems moist:





    Will Sacha Baron Cohen's undercover series be the TV event of the year?

    49 seconds of my life wasted.

    Who do I sue?

    That's 10% of a wank.
    How much to sue depends on your going rate.

    I imagine Trump will get some airtime. Because he really, really needs it.

    Palin, who asked for the proceeds from the programme to be donated to charity, added: "Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country. Truly sick."

    Perhaps she should apply that outrage to her President, otherwise it comes across as a bit phoney.

    Has this idea not been absolutely flogged to death by now?

    Nope.

    Baron-Cohen will continue to flog that particular dead horse for years...

    Enviro Make your assessment

    In the US? Not sure. Maybe, as he's an unfamiliar face, he's able to get high profile people to see revealing things?

    Cohen's character has got his own conspiracy website. It's quite convincing.

    There's a lot to read there!

    Is it on this weekend? I'll no doubt give it a look.

    The letter to Sarah Palin on the home page is worth reading.

    It's on Channel 4 on Monday.

    His targets in the US usually just show how gracious American people are. How about a tour of Russia.
