What I watched: Have I Got News For You: S52E05 (original air date: November 4, 2016)
How I watched: YouTube
Synopsis: Irreverent comedy political quiz show which highlights (and makes fun of) headline news and political gaffs of the past week.
Why I watched: Catching up on the current season.
Notes: A very tense confrontation between Ian Hislop and Tim Loughton MP opened the show, where Loughton became very defensive of Hislop’s mild Brexit comments and the two basically fired guns at each other. It was cool to see because, as always, Hislop won easily by being right (among other things).
The rest of the episode was about the US presidential election and issues stemming from that. I will be very interested to see next week’s episode (post-election).
Recommend: Yes. Especially if you like politics.
