''How TV Ruined Your Life'' (2011–present) is a series from Creator/CharlieBrooker and a fine example of HypocriticalHumour. In this TV series, Brooker illustrates the various ways that the hateful lie-box has ruined your life, by giving you a flawed image of reality. The show itself takes the form of a combination of clips from shows with commentary, strange skits, and parodies. Each episode focuses on a particular way that TV has ruined your life, such as by filling you with fear, or giving you false and impossible aspirations.
