Nah, it consistently rated about half a mil per night

That's not bad for a trash concept

There's been more hyped shows than that, that were axed after 2 or 3 eps

Holey Moley is an awful show that I found I kept watching. A bit of mindless entertainment to break the monotony. Rated OK to start with. Not sure how sustainable that will be as there could be a lot of sameness about the content. The Uranus jokes have already dried up.

I don’t often seem to agree with Botman... but, twice in two days... Boston Legal is one of the all time great shows!

Even if it's not particularly popular around these parts, Futurama is a cult favourite that a lot of people will be glad is there. I don't think it's ever been streamable in Australia until now, it's famously inaccessible here.

You might well have expressed the views of the vast bulk of Australia.

I can't watch it. I watched one full season a few years back and I can't stand all the fake drama. I also hate those shows that show you what's coming up after the ad break. Its all just filler for a lack of content. I will confess the season I watched was a train wreck but I get the impression it's the same train wreck every year.

The Block got the same. Last time I watched, it was a 90 min show, with only 30 mins of it being about building.

Scotty Whistles: Righto guys, you’re under the pump, and you have 3hrs left to get your ensuites done. We know you’re stressed. We figured what better way to relieve that stress than to hit the sand dunes, do some doughies and speed up the erosion process in your Colorado Utes.

After that, our mates at Woronora Plumbing want you to sing karaoke and do the Gangnam Style dance in their warehouse.

What does this have to do with building? **** knows. But if the ensuites aren’t done this afternoon, you’ll be sure to be on the cover of New Idea tomorrow. So get to it!

I just watched “I Know This Much Is True”. I had missed it, until I saw Mark Ruffalo winning a Golden Globe. Tough to watch at times, but it’s very good television. Surprisingly not that well reviewed by some. But it clearly has an impact with audiences. I’d really recommend it, but those who have issues with mental health or know people with them might find it too disturbing.

Arrested Development is disappearing from Netflix in a little under two weeks, so I'm taking the opportunity to watch the last season before it goes.

2018, and I never got around to it until now...

Arrested Development episode Pier Pressure is my all time favourite. 25 minutes of pure gold comedy.
