Packer wins again
27 June 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a pity that Kerry Packer was such an unlikeable bloke. He had the money to be able to step on anyone's toes to make a buck, and the bottom line of this show is that he does it again - doesn't matter who or how many are in the way. Look at the way he humiliates his staff - fact or fiction? There is enough evidence around to know it was fact, but that was Kerry Packer all over - just that this time it was cricket.

What is good about the show is that it gave a chance to many younger Aussie actors - too often we see the same old faces time and again. It was refreshing to watch some other actors all doing a decent job. I am sure many watched to see how their old cricket heroes appeared in this series. And I don't think anyone would have been disappointed. The producers really did spend time and money to groom appearances.

It's just a pity that Packer's obnoxiousness keeps getting in the way.
