Only 13 episodes and this show was unfairly, unceremoniously canned. It is evident from the support it gets from fans posting to the Internet that Micallef has a loyal following and deservedly so. He is truly the funniest man in Australia, and possibly the funniest in the world (but I have not seen the comedic talents of the Nepalese or Madagasgarians, so I could be jumping to conclusions here). Either way, the show had brilliant moments, but to try and balance satire and the genuine article is a difficult mix. I think Micallef was restrained by the conventional expectations of what he "should" do on a talk show, but was at his best when he just did what he wanted to do. I think it is clear he did not have complete creative control over this show, nor a budget to do it justice. Shaun, please don't stay away from Aussie telly for too long. You are too good and too loved!!!
