New series: Asylum - what if Jullian Assange and Kim Dotcom were stuck in the same Embassy?

New BBC Four series features a fictionalised version of Jullian Assange and a fictionalised version of Kim Dotcom sharing a room at a ficitonalised Equadorian embassy.

Whistleblowing and Pirate jokes abound in this sitcom you wouldn't have considered believable a few years ago. Whilst the show hasn't been getting great reviews, I feel it's because some would rather the material be dealt with more seriously than has done.

In my view this is a must watch for Pirates, Wikileaks, and political satire fans. Imagine The Thick of It with touch of Four Lions humour wrapped up in a sitcom.
