Nashville

As I mentioned the other week, I'm not a great watcher of fictional television. When friends talk about "The West Wing", "Orange Is The New Black" and "Miss Fischer's Murders", I tend to glaze over. While there are some shows I do watch intently, and with passion, most of the time, television is either background... Continue Reading →

Please Like Me

I always feel a bit awkward when friends talk about what they've been watching on TV. "Have you seen Nashville? What did you think of the latest episode of Borgen? Have you been watching House Of Cards". You know what I mean. THOSE kind of conversations where a group of friends talk in intimate detail... Continue Reading →

The Box

In some ways I was a rather precocious child. Really? You sure about that? No way! Unlike other children of my generation I was allowed to watch some of the more "adult" television programs screened on Australian. For example, I loved Number 96. As I wrote on the fortieth anniversary screening of the show... I... Continue Reading →

88 Documentary

Thought I'd give a mention to a documentary my friend, Michaela Perske has produced and co-written called "88". The documentary goes back to 1988, the year of the Australian Bicentenary, and tells the story of some of the many thousands of Indigenous people who travelled from all over Australia to join in protests on January...

Number 96 Turns Forty

"The thing I'm most proud about Number 96 is that it saved lives", David Sale told us at tonight's fortieth anniversary screening of the legendary Australian television show. As the creator of the show, and as a gay man, he was speaking about the impact of the program's character, Don Finlayson, on the large number... Continue Reading →

Television Saturday

Regular appearances by Sean Micallef could emerge as the only reason I don't become totally addicted to "Laid", the new black comedy on ABC 1. I don't know why I don't like him. I just don't. Co-incidentally, the last time I truly loved a program and found my allegiances tested was when he became Laura's... Continue Reading →

Embarrassing illnesses

I don't know if it's my television viewing habits, or if it's the summer season, but every time I turn on Channel 9 or Gem, there seems to be an episode of "Embarrassing Illnesses" (or one of the associated spin-off programs). Are they strip programming it at the moment? I can't recall exactly the first... Continue Reading →

Democracy in Action

After watching Q&A tonight, my attention turned to democracy in Sweden, as I watched a "leader's debate" - or Duell, as they called it - ahead of next weekend's general election there. If you're interested, you can actually watch the debate with English commentary on the SVT website. In fact, it seems it was translated... Continue Reading →

Television Sunday

I'm checking out Twitter, I'm reading every newspaper article, I'm listening to the radio, and I'm watching a fair bit of television for even the slightest cue from the independents about when they'll make a decision or announcement (it's a professional interest for me at the moment). Although there's speculation, and there'll be some rumours,... Continue Reading →

News Junkie

For the last twenty four hours I've been multi-tasking: listening to the radio, watching television and surfing the net. As I was working last night, I couldn't swap around as much as I normally do on an election night which is a shame because there was a lot to choose from this year. Some years... Continue Reading →
