half of Ten (Tuesday August 8th, 2006 - 22:35)

category: mmhuh?

Free-to-air TV in Australia has it’s ups and downs. I’ve grumbled to myself before about why on earth channel Ten thinks it can feed us 3 episodes of the Simpsons in one night. Not that there’s anything wrong with the Simpsons, but surely there are other programs that could be thrown in to the mix.

Tonight’s schedule for Ten is as follows:

Ten TV guide

4 episodes of the Simpsons, and one episode of Futurama. Hmm.

Try another channel? Well Seven seems to be showing medical reality shows and medical dramas; Nine is showing something-or-other-on-ice; and ABC and SBS are a little heavy for an evening on a couch with a headache. I’m a hard woman to please.  Out come the DVDs of Northern Exposure (one of the brilliant TV series of the 1990s, a wonderful time for television)…

I’ll trade your three episodes of the Simpsons for three home make-over programmes and an hour of Big Brother.
