#MAFS Now there's another "wife" preying on one or more other "husband". This show is compulsive viewing, but they are clearly just deliberately generating this stuff.

Of course! that's the entire point
They dont want happy well matched couples, if they get one it's dumb luck (or in their case, unluck)
They want chaos
I stopped watching. The over the top drama was too much for me. I just find most of them irritating.

Billy's "wife"... she sure is a piece of work. What an awful, trashy person. The "experts", as in the producers of the show, have really scraped the bottom of the barrel.

Anybody watched The Ranch? It’s food for a laugh, some very bad acting in it though.

We're currently watching a VERY good series called "The Bridge" on Stan. It's in Swedish and Danish with subtitles, but it's really worth it.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes a good police drama.

I caught the MAFs replay this arvo. That blonde, who is quite easy on the eye but not a very pleasant person, forgot to wear her entire outfit. That top? Is it common these days to wear undergarments and yeah "I think that'll do".

If #MAFS was a genuine "experiment", then they would not allow people to "remain in relationships" simply because they want to hook up with someone else in the group.

The woman who has reputably now hooked up with Todd Carney... what an intensely awful human being. Poor Billy, good on him for telling her exactly what an awful person she is.

It looks like she went on the show to get a bit of media exposure. Sure, they all seem a little that way but she doesn't seem interested in a relationship with Billy at all.

Cyrells wannabe gangster brother is a douche. It's a little creepy IMO. Sure there is being protective of your sister but he's crossing into possessive territory.

#MAFS I take it back. Cam and Jules seem like genuine people too, their families too. Sadly one of the dads is a Sea Eagles fan.

The "experts". Do they have licences to practice what they do? They should be revoked.

I watched all the episodes of the second series of Secret City today.

"Secret City: Under the Eagle"

Great show. Really worth watching. And fun watching out for the Canberra locations to boot. Apparently, one extended scene was shot in an underground car park a block from my place. How did I miss all the excitement of filming?

Yeah I thought it was really good. Over the top storyline in the US style, but very enjoyable and beautifully shot with great camera angles and location shots.

Anyone who enjoyed Taika Waititi‘s movie “What we do in the shadows” the tv series has started up on Fox, so far as funny as the movie was.

I enjoyed it, how many times is it on a week? Might turn me off committing to it.

Started watching the Madeleine McCann doco on Netflix. It’s a bit of a slow burn. 8x 1hr eps, and you already know there’s no resolution.
