Episode 1: Room 101

Summary

Frank Skinner invites satirist Charlie Brooker, presenter Scarlett Moffatt and actress Pearl Mackie to express their anger over individuals, events and objects that upset them, hoping to curry the host's favour and see them consigned to oblivion. Their gripes include crocodiles, mosquitoes and having one's hair cut

Review

Charlie Brooker completely floors his fellow guests with his rather broad suggestion that “anything I don’t want to do” should be consigned to the dreaded vault.

“Most things aren’t worth bothering with,” he explains with a totally straight face to Scarlett Moffatt and Pearl Mackie’s obvious horror. “It would have made no difference to the quality of my life if 98 per cent of it hadn’t happened.” He must be an absolute joy to live with – although he is hilarious here and argues his case eloquently.

So will Frank Skinner agree or will he come up with his own reason not to put that idea into Room 101? Among the hated things also up for discussion are haircuts, mosquitos and Crocs – that’s the plastic shoes not the reptiles.
