Synopsis:
Episode 1:
Baffled human wreck Dan Ashcroft (columnist on Sugar Ape) watches in horror as his world is over-run with 24-carat berks, led by a strutting, brainless c***-of-the-walk called Nathan Barley, who, distressingly, has designs on Dan's sister Claire.
Episode 2:
Dan is canonised against his will, while Nathan throws a party for his rubbish website and oozes closer to Claire.
Episode 3:
While Dan is plagued by a shrieking twit of a photographer called 15Peter20, Nathan grooms Claire with alcohol and an unsolicited breast massage.
Episode 4:
Dan accidentally creates a new hairstyle by sleeping in paint, while Nathan needs a new look to impress glamourous TV-chick Dajve ('Dave') Bikinus. Something is killed.
Episode 5:
Editor Jonatton Yeah? wants Dan to take part in some straight-on-straight gay action and a coke-blasted model proves an irresistible lure for Nathan.
Episode 6:
In the final episode, Nathan piggybacks his way into Claire's meeting with a TV commissioner, Pingu is broken like a rag doll, and Dan finally discovers a way to destroy Nathan.

An overlooked satirical gem. - Nathan Barley: Series 1 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
07/02/2010

If you liked Chris Morris's "Brass Eye" then this is every bit as funny mixing Chris Morris's biting satire with Charlie Brooker's clever observational comedy based on the new-media's social elite. Aside from the fact it's clever satire it's just a damn funny comedy to boot. A real shame a second series never got off the ground as Nathan Barley is as relevant today as it was when first broadcast in 2005.
