In this first episode, a British princess is kidnapped, and the captor has an odd and disturbing demand...
[Spoiler for the first ep. Each ep is a stand-alone story, so no worries on anything spoiled beyond that.]The demand is for the Prime Minister to have sex with a pig, and that the act be broadcast live on every TV channel. /end spoiler
The hour follows all the happenings around that, how much the media impacts things, how public opinion changes, etc. It's fascinating in a sick, dark, disturbing way. I can't stop thinking about it.
The one downside to this series is that, even though it has two seasons, it has only a total of seven episodes. Each season has three eps, plus there's a Christmas special (I can only imagine what that might be like...).
It's currently available on Netflix.
Edit: Episode 2 is amazing too, in a totally different way. So messed up and disturbing and just amazing. I love this series!
