Death To 2020 review

Of course, some will argue that we shouldn't be laughing at the horror-show in which we're all so inextricably mired, but I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to. Chances are, you will to.

Death To 2020: mockumentary proves comedy's demise

2020 has been a brutal year, but one that offers huge potential for humor. However, Death To 2020's tepid, establishment-friendly take on the past 12 months feels like the final nail in the coffin of true comedy.

Review: Death To 2020

Perhaps it's a case of too many cooks, with eighteen writers listed in the credits, and the desire to reach a much bigger audience given that the likes of Jackson, Jones, Grant and Milioti were all involved, but the satire felt bleakly blunted.

Review: Death To 2020

It fast became a cliché to say that the spiralling dystopia of 2020 was like an out-of-control episode of Black Mirror. So it was probably inevitable that Charlie Brooker would be called upon to offer a satirical summary of the momentously awful 12 months, especially given his track record with the Wipe series for the BBC. The result is a wry, often bleakly amusing look at the year, albeit without the astringent personal bite Brooker normally brings to his year-end round-ups.

Review: Death To 2020

Once people realise Death To 2020 isn't actually very Black Mirror-esque at all, but rather just a subpar year-in-review show - in the vein of Last Week Tonight only less sharp - I'm not sure why anybody would seek out this special.

Review: Death To 2020 is too rushed

The 70-minute Netflix special should probably have been at least five times longer.

Review: Death To 2020

It's fun, but only if your idea of fun is watching 70 minutes of Hollywood stars reading out jokes from The Mash Report.
