A serious but often entertaining discussion panel about current affairs
25 March 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Q&A is one of Australia's live television institutions for people who care about what's happening in the country. Every Monday night on ABC a panel of carefully-picked members from various organisations and communities are put together on a panel to discuss and debate current affairs relating to Australia and the world. Quite often, two politicians from opposing parties are put on the panel, leading to fireworks in the studio as one puts down the efforts or policies of the other party. The panel members are given questions from the public and politicians squirm as they try their best to choose their words carefully and answer the question without committing to introducing any policies to fix any problems in society or give any estimates on when something might be fixed. With Twitter feeds constantly popping up on the screen, we get to see what other members of the audience are feeling about what is happening, and quite often we end up wishing that a particular politician, who is willing to come on the live debate show and connect with us, should be our new leader. Tony Jones does a commendable job at controlling the members of the panel when they get out of hand, especially when opposing politicians start verbally fighting. This is always entertaining for the viewer but unfortunately its one-hour duration sometimes leaves some topics without a proper conclusion.
