I've just got my copy of the Brass Eye DVD, I'm thinking of showing it to my media studies class. Do you think they'll appreciate it?

Would the humour translate? If they're Swedes, their English will be better than mine, but do Swedes appreciate surreal black satire?

I think it's very relevant for a media studies class.

Insert clips from Fox News into the WAR episode and see if anyone can tell the difference.

I think so- the swedish sense of humour is quite similar to the british in that respect. Swedes will probably appreciate the absurdist aspect more than the advanced intellectual toilet humour aspect, but taken together I'm sure it'll work.
