What have Robert Kilroy Silk, a sheep, a singing Geoff Hoon and a Shiny Happy George Bush all got in common? Answer: they all co-exist in this week's watchable myopic world of Don't Watch That Watch This. Not so much a news alternative more an explosion in the editing suite. It's time to open the doors for a third time on cannibal TV as the line between fake and fiction turns blurry before our eyes.
