Charlie Brooker returns for another trawl through the week's headlines and a look at the best and worst that telly, film and the internet has to offer. In the news, Oscar Pistorius was judged by the world's press without actually going to trial yet, Hilary Mantel's comments about the Duchess of Cambridge caused outrage without anyone actually reading them and Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 without showing anyone what it will actually look like. Charlie looks back at yet another thrilling night at the Brit Awards and casts his eye over two new cookery shows, Simon Cowell's Food Glorious Food and the American reality series The Taste.

Plus, Philomena and Barry examine the popular internet dance meme The Harlem Shake, Doug Stanhope explains why he enjoys tasteless jokes on Twitter and Charlie is joined by some rather familiar-looking guests to review new film Cloud Atlas. All that, and a look at the advantages of painting a wall bright pink.
