The brainchild of Charlie Brooker and Chris Morris, Nathan Barley is their latest comedy assault on society; a satirical parody of the Hoxton-finned, style obsessed world of the new media.

Nathan Barley is 26. He is a webmaster, guerrilla filmmaker, screenwriter, DJ and in his own words, a "self-facilitating media node". He is convinced he is the epitome of urban cool and therefore secretly terrified he might not be, which is why he reads Sugar Ape Magazine - his bible of cool.

Episode 1: Baffled human wreck Dan Ashcroft (columnist on Sugar Ape) watches in horror as his world is over-run with 24 carat berks, led by a strutting, brainless c***-of-the-walk called Nathan Barley, who, distressingly, has designs on Dan's sister Claire.

Episode 2: Dan is canonised against his will, while Nathan throws a party for his God-defeatingly rubbish website and oozes closer to Claire.

Episode 3: While Dan is plagued by a shrieking twit of a photographer called 15Peter20, Nathan grooms Claire with alcohol and unsolicited breast massage.

Episode 4: Dan accidentally creates a new hairstyle by sleeping in paint. Nathan needs a new look to impress glamourous TV chick Dajve 'dave' Bikinus. Something is killed.

Episode 5: Editor Jonatton Yeah? wants Dan to take part in some straight-on-straight gay action. A coke-blasted model proves an irresistible lure for Nathan.

Episode 6: In the final episode, Nathan piggybacks his way into Claire's meeting with a TV commissioner, Pingu is broken like a rag doll and Dan finally discovers a way to destroy Nathan.

 Disgustingly Funny

This show is parts is utterly vile, but so vile you can't stop watching. Nathan Barley is such a disgusting character you have to love him, he'll make you cry laughter. At times it'll be so bad you'll be cringing away from the screen as you laugh. He's generally a disgusting, perverted little man who if you knew you'd hate. In this show you have to love him, he's just so funny. Chris Morris has done a brilliant job writing this, its without one of the best comedies of 2005. I recommend everyone to see it!

 Not Chris Morris' best work, but still sterling stuff

Combining Chrlie Brooker (a man who recognises bad television much easier than good television - like most of us with taste) and Chris Morris (the master of social hatred) was always going to be a tongue-in-cheek affair, but I didn't really expect it to be this funny-in-an-obvious-way.

That's no bad thing of course as many times before now we've had to look for the laugh-out-loud parts in many of Morris' endeavours into 'Just How Hideous We All Are At Heart', but Nathan Barley is the most blatant by far.

Of all of the (fantastically horrible) characters on display here, even the ones that are meant to be likeable don't quite make it into the 'I wish I knew them' category.

Burns and Barratt are brilliant together; thier awkward presences making the deepest of impacts in the scenes they share together. But it's Ben Whishaw as Pingu who shines the most here; his utterly brillaint physicalities and facial expressions set the uneasy-o-meter for every episode. At first Pingu is so cute that you just want him protected from the world he so unknowingly sits in the middle of. Towards the end though you are as bad as the others, and you just think he deserves it.
