The Gruen Transfer (TGT) is a show about advertising, how it works, and how it works on us. Hosted by the inimitable Wil Anderson, TGT decodes and defuses the commercial messages that swirl... See full summary »
A clever spin off from the comedy series "CNNNN"(a scathingly witty parody of cable news, specifically CNN/SKY e.t.c), now bringing you biting satire based on Australia's 2004 Election.
Never biased too far left nor right, swinging back and forth like a crazed voter, with clever skits and fake adverts making a mockery of the political system itself.
John Howard's "I will quit leading once I'm under a bus" comments leading to the "Christine"/"DUEL"-style bus chase of the Prime Minister, Opposition Leader Mark Latham's horrible eating habits made into a mockery of the documentary film "Supersize Me!"(http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390521), and many many more jabs, both short and sweet and long and witty.
Two votes up for this (unfortunately short special) TV series!
To finish: ABC! Bring back CNNNN A.S.A.P!
