Okay, cool, I may consider watching more. But its strange, these days i hardly watch any TV, Unless its DVD box sets or Downloaded. BUUUT, i did watch Two Twisted the other night (Monday?) it was cool. One of the episodes next week was directed by one of the directors at my work. Graeme Burfoot. Watch it, it'll be great!

POooooor Glass House.

Funny ep though, i loved will's "They would have seen the humour of the situation, but they were German."

And Natasha's letter to the PM "We said take action on GREENhouse, not GLASShouse".

Heh heh. I loved the German thing as well.

I wrote to the ABC and called all the execs "sons and daughters of whores".
And then I wrote again and complained about them axing The Glass House.
I'm hoping Will takes the team off to another network.

Edit: Cybershack -    no no

The stupidest part of the show i don't like is how they compare the game to real life thing seriously who the F*** cares   hmpf

It sucks that the Glass House has been axed, even though with all the sudden increase in politician jokes.

Well no more TV until Top Gear and Dr. Who are back on.

I think the issue should be more about freedom of speech than personal taste. By ever-increasing increments the people's ability to say what we don't like about our esteemed arsehole leaders is being whittled away. The abuses of rights starts small so that nobody notices; little compromises are made here and there, and folk get used to the idea. It's like a knife blade - the tip is tiny so that it can easily break the skin... and then the rest can follow.
When The Man starts dictating what we can and can't watch on TV it's short step to dictating what we can and can't say on the street... what we can and can't write on a protest sign, etc etc. It's the start of totalitarianisn... the tip of the blade.
It's telling that The Glass House was topping shows on the commercial networks for ratings and was generally been one of the most successful shows the ABC's had in recent times.

Futurama started rerunning on Ten! Welcome to an infinite lifetime of repeats, Fry!  frown

'Grandpa Vs Sexual Inadequacy' was on the other night! The bit where Grandpa Simpson goes "What's wrong with hearing me talk about seeeeeeex? I had seeeeeex." got cut out for some reason.  hmpf

Where have you been, M0le? Futurama's already been shown in its entirity twice now, and that "seeeex" bit always gets cut out when that episode airs at 6:00pm. Same with Homer's "You look like a man who needs help satisfying his wife" line. Damn G ratings... they should just put The Simpsons permanently on in a 7:00pm slot so they can air every season.

I think it was a 7:00 episode, but I could've sworn I've seen it dozens of times at 6:00 with that line still in it... I was shocked that it wasn't there. Not at all surprised though.   hmpf

At least when they launched the censorships they missed "Your father and his father are in the middle of a very sticky... chewy... nutty... chocolately... PUT THAT AWAY BOY!"  love

Well if anyone watched the Honourable Wally Norman, there would've been a slim chance that you would've seen me in that movie since I was an extra in the goat race scene.

Looking up Thank God You're Here, it sounds like a rip-off of Whose Line Is It Anyway?..

That true?

Eh, they're both improvisational comedies, the formats and scenarios are quite different, though. Whose Line gives the improviser a vague concept and they run with it, Thank God You're Here puts them into an elaborate and specific scenario. The actors run through a scripted scene and essentially leave blanks for the improviser to insert their own punchline. Whose Line does different types of games and stuff too, TGYH is the same idea, just different scenarios.

...Of course, there's only SO much you can do with the improvisational genre, but, yeah, I wouldn't use the term "rip-off." Certainly something along the same lines, though. Either way, Whose Line is it Anyway is better.

Cool, thanks.  So would you describe TGYH as "any good?"  The format has been sold to America and Germany among others...

Oh, yeah, it's definitely a great show, it just depends who's on. Frank Woodley = GOD.
