Unlucky 13, 12 August 2003
Author: gedhead from Sydney, Australia

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!!!
