The Panel is getting tired. These guys should move on to something else. Mixing up humorous and serious reflection on news & current affairs is their game, and they've played fairly I suppose. But they confined themselves to a format that can't evolve, which leaves them jogging on the spot. This has resulted in a little "cabin fever" setting in.
And their recent TV ad campaign are a sign they are experiencing a touch of deluded status. You know the ads I mean, with the alternative art effect ramped up beyond any representation of the actual show. Their words sometimes echo with a disturbing "this is how it is" tone as well, even on subjects clearly out of their depth.
Interesting guests are sometimes squeezed in at the table and blasted with lights, camera, questions. Claustrophobic.
Overall there has been a few good times, some funny times, and a crap load of ... well, screensaver times.
