Ah yes, the Aussie TV thread. How I have missed it.

The Chaser Decides last night was halarious- Tony Abbot falling asleep during John Howard's speech, the seat of Monaro, Labor now underdog for underdog status, How boring Simon Crean is, Super Size Me 2 and the whole novelty cheque thing. Brilliance. Its a pity they didn't do CNNNN this year though.

I too brought the 'The Micallef Program(me)' DVD. I also brough Shaun Micallef's new book, 'Smithereens'. Best sketch of the DVD? The 'wine' one. You wouldn't understand unless you've seen it.

I've also heard news of Shaun making a new show in 2005 on the ABC, tentitivly titled 'Mouse Patrol'. I can't wait.

They never should have cancelled Micallef. That was the one funny show on Nine.
I also caught The Chaser Decides last night too. It has a different approach now, but it's still great. Tony Abbot falling asleep during Howard's speech, and the Simon Crean theme song were my two favourite bits.

The Chaser Decides was excellent, much better than last week's episode for mine.  They kept a similar approach, but made it funnier. Good job.

John Safron vs God (episode 6)

"Now, I've never been prone to hyperbole... but this is exactly like Nazi Germany!"

This episode wasn't actually as funny as his previous efforts (and his closing rant had bugger all to do with religion), but it definately had it's moments. His singing was, of course, absolutely gut-wrenchingly awful, but it was the suger-coated responses by (most) of the choir members that gave me most of the giggles.
The viking bit was actually pretty boring. I liked  'Here comes my Raven... oh wait, that's a pidgeon."
I actually knew about the vampire thing from a while back. Pity he didn't get at Peter Costello. Prime candidate for the undead.
I admit it. His final rant totally pwned me. I do know something of the Congo (thanks to a documentary about mobile phones), and the various troubles therein, but I didn't know that it used to be Zaire, and I didn't know exactly where it was. Ouch.

Pretty good, but I hope that the last one can up teh funny stakes.

Apparantally John gets an excorcism in the last episode.  big grin

Anyway, I didn't think that this episode was that funny at all... The only segment that really had something to do with religion was the Viking one (which, funnily enough, is the most normal religion he's road-tested so far). Still, the "feedback" he got from his "singing" was pretty funny, and I did laugh during the Vampire segment where he held garlic up to the politician.  tongue

Still, probably the least funniest episode yet. Here's hoping he can make it up in the last 2 episodes.

John Safran vs God Episode 6:
Another good episode, not the best, but still pretty funny. The first section was actually pretty boring for me, their responses weren't very funny, and the best part was seeing the men shaking their heads behind him while he's singing.
Vikings, similar ideas, not too funny, but their clothes sure were.
The vampire section was better, and I'm half surprised I haven't seen this in the newspaper "Deluded lunatic accuses politicians of vampirism", but it was pretty funny when he was accused of being a vampire.
As for his closing rant, I actually had a laugh at this. I do happen to know where The Democratic Republic of Congo and The Republic of Congo are. They're both in central Africa, right next to each other. I've made it a habit to know where most countries in the world are and their capital cities, but I know a lot of people who badmouth the US citizens and couldn't locate either of them. Anyway, his rants aren't always supposed to be about religion, they mostly follow hypocrisy from Atheists. I had a laugh anyway, but yes, probably the worst episode.  laff

Since you asked so nicely, here's my opinion on Titanic:
Two and a half hours of absolute boredom, followed by half an hour of hilarious mayhem. That's Titanic summed up in one sentence.

You forgot the 20-seconds-or-so of nudi... err, nevermind. Besides Gleno, how could we not talk about John Safran? He's having a fight with God, for fuck sake! The outcome of this series could determine who will be our next ruler!

Also, I forgot to comment on the segment with the Palestine/Israel peace plan. Once again, more politcal-based than religion-based humour, and although having an ex Big Brother housemate as the official spokesperson for the situation does sound pretty funny, the outcome sure wasn't... Even the reactions from the experts only made me chuckle. Overall, a pretty boring segment.

Still, good to see that even though it was the least funniest episode yet of John Safran vs God, it beat every other thing on that night.  smile

Oh, I just remembered. My brother's watching Blue Heelers now and it reminded me. One of my friends played that guy Ben's daughter for two episodes, and she was a major character too. Not important in any way, but I just remembered it and it has something to do with Aussie TV. And another friend of mine had them use his locker for the snake to fall out of.

I would have to agree with you on that one. I have only watched the first 20 min of that crap and thenleft and watched something else until the ship was sinking as soon as the ship sank I fliped the channel. Basicly the Titanic sinking is a movie all by its self, god now its long enough.

Hey Collateral Damage is on this sunday night just saw the preview for it like 2 seconds ago while watching CSI Miami and typing.

And MOLe why the hell is your brother watching Blue Heelers. Its amazing what can happen in a small hick infested town.

yeah im a few days off, but still, i thought John Safran was a little slow, his closing rant was funny, at the begining i was thinking yeah, stupid americans! but then he made me point to something and i didnt feel very smart   frown. Also i was at a friends that night, and i made them watch "Six Feet Under". well this weeks ep wasnt a great one for them to start on, they really think im sick now, cause this episode probably had the most Gay/Drug/Disguisting stuff than any of the others. but it was still a pretty good one.

I saw the JSvG episode from a few weeks ago last night at my mates house, and it was gold!

Father Pino and the confessions... his long bitch about Mormons... his travels to India... whatever else was there (I don't remember).

Anyway, I'm glad I managed to see it. Now only one episode to catch up with.

I finally got home early enough to catch part of John Safran vs God. It was good, but not as good as you guys seemed to have hyped it.
The little facts between segments are pretty cool tho

I loved the bit where John was saved by his magic underpants.  big grin

Yeah, since both segments were filmed in Salt Lake City... Anyway, I really enjoyed last night's episode - especially the addition of those facts after each segment. Definately one of the better ones, despite another disturbing animal sacrafice scene.

My family wanted to watch 'The 4400' last night on the main TV last night so I missed actually watching John Safran, but luckily I shoved my tape in at the last moment and saved it. I'll watch it when I get home tonight.

It would have been good If they'd sold it as A comedy. I mean some of those scenes could have been ripped right out Of A Soap Opera.

No, that's the letter I, and only when you're using it to refer to yourself - eg. "I went to the shops and I bought a carton of milk."
