Should have gone down when they scuttled the BOUNTY!
Ted Emery who seems to have thrived on tasteless, puerile and unfunny TV comedy, really directed a stinker with this one. As Executive Producer and script contributor, along with Steve Vizard, he can't blame anyone.
"Absharp" is right, they didn't screen all twenty five episodes due to "lack of public interest." The idea of mocking the life of William Bligh's governorship in NSW in the early eighteen hundreds MIGHT have seemed a good idea at the time. The reality was something less.
Personally, I didn't like THE CRAIC either. His latest project for 2002 (his second feature film), is THE HONORABLE WALLY NORMAN - about a meat worker who gets elected to Government by accident! Puh'lease!!!
