A bold and entertaining program
18 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the ABC's latest pet project last year, a show centered on the dissection of local and international advertising campaigns. Sounds as boring as dry toast on paper but the production itself is very much aligned with the slick advertising experts that join host Wil Anderson on the panel. The show itself pops and crackles along with a great charm and wit provided by a panel of genuinely interesting people with a broad arc of opinions that spark and contrast within each other really very well. The producing team have done a solid job pulling together an array of personalities that are actually interesting to watch (I'm looking at you Top Gear Australia).
