Booze Britain

  • Russell Brown,

    Does anybody else ever catch the British reality show Booze Britain late on Friday nights on Sky 1? Should I be ashamed for finding its' apparently limitless fare of petty crime, falling over, and sick and munted punters weirdly compelling? And would the roving camera find anything different in New Zealand?

  • Adrian Wills,

    Is there any better show for the raw [and yes, compelling] portrayal of the Brits on the booze... Some of the stories are truly gripping including one I saw where a guy is so drunk, he gets stabbed in the side of the head with a knife and continues to waltz along the pavement oblivous to what's happened for more than 20 metres before he keels over - and I think he died.

    But I couldn't help but laugh at the little segue they have between segments ending in the old fashioned British "Oi!". Truly funny.

  • BlairMacca,

    I used to watch this on Sky in Ireland, which was followed funnily enough by our won Motorway Patrol and Police 10/7! Those two programs used to make me laugh thinking how little (most) of our crimes are compared to other countries....
