Very insightful, entertaining and interesting
27 October 2013 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

The Gruen Transfer is an extremely insightful television show about advertising. It shows what the advertising industry does to make products look appealing and other stuff. The show was very well presented by Wil Anderson, alongside two regular panellists that are members of two different advertising industries, Todd Sampson and Russel Howcroft, and they show their different opinions based on one advertisement, and it can show that opinions on things in general, both negative and positive, are fine and are all entitled to.

The Pitch is my favourite part of the show, as it shows so much creativity in selling stuff that cannot be sold.

I do feel a little sorry for other countries across the world, that they do not have an advertising talk show of their own. If they did, other countries can watch an advertising talk show where they can learn so much about advertising.

I highly recommend this show, try it out!
