"The Greatest Talk Show Ever" - Channel 9 Publicity, 14 May 2003
Author: resist_refuse90 from Brisbane, Australia

After writing a comment for this show yesterday but accidentally closing the window, i cant really see myself repeating what i said. but anyway..

This Show is so much better than Rove and The Panel and The Glass House etc. etc. etc. and this is my reaction after only one episode!

Why It Is Better Than Rove:

Less immature jokes that are simply there for the purpose of being immature. I'm mainly talking about What The... which Micallef kind of steals from rove and calls it On My High Horse. micallefs version is more clever, mature and most importantly, funny than roves ever was.

Why It Is Better Than The Panel:

The guests on the panel are rarely entertaining. they always just talk about why theyre in Australia for whatever reason yada yada yada. This isnt to say that the panel isnt a great show. Compared to channel 10s other lineup of Australian comedy it is genius. So far, micallef seems as though he can make anything funny with his guests (Barrington Humphries anyone?)

Why It Is Better Than The Glass House:

The Glass House, more often than not, tends to just go too extreme with its humour. it tries to be as offensive as possible (something South Park does better if you ask me) and this doesnt always work. Micallef can make you laugh simply by being funny. If that makes sense.....

Of course i dont even have to list reasons as to why its better than Skithouse hehehe.
