Never have I been more ashamed of being Australian than when I look at this utter, utter garbage they allowed on television.
Do you realize that foreign business men, women and diplomats who came to Australia and turned on the television at night in their hotel rooms between business meetings were confronted with such rubbish? Does it not embarrass the rest of us as a nation that this is the dribble we have to offer on a professional level? I mean, this is not cable TV is it. It boggles the mind that is the sort of standard that Australian television sunk to. No wonder it only lasted one season.
We may not pay or budget as much as American television, but surely we could of come up with something better than this??
The only purpose this nonsense served was to validate the stereotype that Australians are mindless beer swilling idiots. No matter how far Australians go as a nation, we can always look back on this and hang our collective heads in shame.
May God himself have mercy upon us.
