It is easy to complain about "reality" TV and other low-brow programs, but if the public didn't absolutely LOVE watching it, it would go away tomorrow and something else would take its place. If your band is playing night clubs, and all the crowd wants to hear is dance music, how long would you last if you insisted in playing your Tribute to Les McCann and Eddie Harris, or your Celine Dione medley?

yep, thats the one I bet, a pointless waste of time. lots of slightly confused eyebrow raising, sunglasses and pausing for effect?

gratuitously stylized animation sequences backed by crappy in the box drum and bass, almost no time out shooting in public. I imagine its pretty cheap to make if you have the studio

yep, for sure, but that doesnt bring any relief, I dont care who is to blame and its a large, distasteful melting pot of responsibility anyway.

i'm waiting to see what travesty is made of Cleaver Greene from RAKE; an excellent Australian Law Drama/black comedy since it was bought by HBO or some **** and they arent using Richard Roxburgh, he MAKES the show and he is just such an excellent, appalling, intelligent and strangely warming/human Australian character. make sure you have a taste for irony though, or you simply wont get it. He was/is a respected Australian stage and screen actor as well; some parts in the UK as well afaik. great supporting cast (including Gary McDonald) and characters too, none of whom afaik are in the US version either...

edit: ah whoops, nope just clips, they only had 2 weeks stored at a time and they are long gone.

if you get a chance I highly recommend this (Australian version) show. I hardly watch commercial telly these days, not so much telly at all, but I do still like to be entertained; this was one of those programs you make sure you arent doing anything.

And what about Dr House'e arrogance ?

I liked to watch musical programs like Carlos Giachetti's Folcrorísimo, or music festivals like Jesús María (Córdoba, Argentina) or Cosquín (Both of them based on Argentine folkloric music), but actually no one air (only Cable)TV channels transmit them.

what about it? hes actually a very good comedic actor and stage actor, but again it just sort of became a caricature of itself

Well Osvaldo, many, many programs seen in Mexico are produced in Argentina.
My wife loves elgourmet channel. What about the Mexican Telenovelas. UFFF they are sold in many countries around the world (even Russia),

I think it´s very creative to make hundreds of TELENOVELAS on the same subject (stupidity) and be succesful every time.

well if you check back at abc.net later this year perhaps it sounds like series 3 of RAKE will be on iView, seriously, I dunno maybe its an aquired taste the humor, but I dont think so, some of the poltics wont make sense but no doubt the humanity will be familiar all the same. definitely some of the best Australian TV in many years so possibly worth a look on that fact alone if it interests you. (particularly series 2 as the characters are more developed, but good to see it develop too)

there is of course a feeling of watching a horrible, funny, utterly flawed carcrash of a character, which is slap-stick in its own way, but not the type of laurel and hardy. very black humor and i'll give an obscene language warning

I agree. I loved The Hour. The BBC has form on this, such as their decent re-make of Survivors which they dropped after a couple of series.

Some of the best TV drama I've seen in quite a while has been Channel 4's Utopia.
