Do you want to talk about this?

Now – I haven’t seen Can We Talk About This? But perhaps you have, and would like to share your impressions.  I’m decidedly well disposed towards the message of the show, but think some reviewers, also sympathetic to its message, seem to have identified some fair quibbles which they explain in a measured and nuanced way.  Here, for example, is Sunder Katwala (I had a couple of quibbles of my own in response to this, but it seemed to make plenty of fair points too), and here is my favourite Moral Maze panellist (and choice for PM in my Normblog profile!) Kenan Malik. However the show is of course a polemic, and a much needed one, so perhaps could not and should not try to achieve a perfectly balanced production.
