Television doesn't get much worse...
6 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A current affair is one of those shows with anything but 'current affairs' Unless of course you care about that person that got ripped off by their insurance company because they didn't read the small print or you're actually interested in the stories that a current affair uses to make sure you watch their channels and not the other channels shows. If you were to combine the entire crew of A Current Affair's common sense and logic, you would have less common sense than what your average garden gnome does. Information about the war? Politics? Crime? Well there is crime on the show, but only if its your unruly neighbourhood teenagers causing all the trouble. Murder? Rape? No way! Not on a current affair.

Oh and I so loved the story about the latest sunglasses in style. That story certainly was a 'current affair'
