Yeah there is potential, they just need to change some of the families. Maybe a real old couple to replace the Silberrys (not bogan like Lee & Keith or posh like Mick & Di, just funny & normal). Swap some of the families, and if kids have to be involved then get more typical, funnier ones.Yeah not the first time we've seen Faye getting the irrits with Anastasia. I hope they're out next season. But with new talent (and a lesser focus on stripped reality) the show can be redeemed. I'm not giving up yet.
The old movies are sometimes funny because the younger ones have never seen them before, so you can get some good reactions. As for the obscure shows, sometimes (rarely) I have actually been inspired to watch some shows I haven't watched before. I actually wish I could be inspired more!They also need to stop with the obscure shows that no one watches, or decades old movies that no one would be watching on tv.
I wonder if they actually watch a full episode of anything, or just a highlights package. They always seem to comment on the exact same scenes.The old movies are sometimes funny because the younger ones have never seen them before, so you can get some good reactions.

I suppose they don't watch dramas such as How to get Away with Murder, or Manifest, because the storylines are too convoluted to understand what the hell is going on in any single episode. Probably isn't easy for them to do the show selection. They probably even have to consider shows from every network + Foxtel (so they can't be accused of favouritism), then a mix of entertainment, news/doco, movie, reality, sport. There's probably a science in there but they still end up depending too heavily on stripped crap. But then 7/9/10 do depend too heavily on that so maybe that's where we end up.
Think again. Her supporters think she's been stitched up by lefty media.I still like it,but it clashes with part 2 of One nation's skullduggery.......and that is unmissable, freakin awesome last night
Loop heads, especially in Queensland may still love the dumb bitch, but they are dead in general surely after this
The original UK version is now 13 seasons in and still rates pretty well over there. Ours is 9 seasons in and the number one show on Foxtel and Ten. I don't think it's going away for many years to come as people still seem to be enjoying it.Very true.
But I just wonder if the premise has longevity as a whole. I know new shows will constantly crop up for them to comment on and new faces may make a change but the premise itself may not have staying power imo. After all, its what we all do 'cept for the fact we dont have to play a defined "role" and fed lines when the occasion suits. I think also the believeability of the supposed "off the cuff" comments wear thin as does the forced" why are watching this" protestations when we all know they are given a set list to watch.
Was fun. Will continue to be so for a time. But they must re-shape the format somehow. And I dont know how you could do that with a show such as this. For me, it was a novelty which is slowly wearing off. But Im equally sure for others it will remain a laugh and a delight watching their fave characters.
