Australian TV steps to a new low, with generic and terribly acted Australian drama
19 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I hate being harsh on someone's work in the TV/film industry, especially when i know of how hard they worked and the time they invested to get their vision onto the screens.

However i feel no remorse, as i know that there was no hard work, nor was any time invested into this show.

Winners and Losers, a show written by the writers of Packed to the Rafters and is made to be a carbon copy of Packed to the Rafters, which is a show that is the same as Neigbours and finally, Neighbours, a show that is the same as Home and Away.Every Australian show is the same generic comedy/drama, barring the rare semi-gem from SBS/ABC.

Winners and Losers is the generic drama like the other shows i've mentioned above.The main plot revolves around a small family fight, fight cools down then it switches to a scene somewhere else where someone's being cheated on(dun dun duuuuunnnnn), but wait the person's who's being cheated on has a friend and he witnessed it all, but will take the whole episode(maybe even longer) to tell the person being cheated on about it due to being scared of it ruining their friendship.

Now the acting, i hate mocking people's work but this is the best Australian TV has to offer?I can't even describe it, sure i get that they're not Hollywood blockbuster level but geez, they took acting classes right?

In conclusion, Winners and Losers is a generic Australian comedy/drama that's only comedy comes from people laughing at the fact that the people involved with the making of the show are actually paid to do what they're doing.Its also a show with weak and uninspiring acting that, when combined with a generic script, makes the average TV watcher want to get rid of their TV.Live in Australia?Hope you like sport, because atrocious shows like these are all that are left when you take that out.
