A chat show where only the host chats!, 16 June 2003

This is the worst chat show ever! The interview techiques Effie uses are terrible. She states facts about the guest, then asks them to elaborate, yet because she has told the audience everything, the guest is left with nothing to say.

Take for example the last episode where Jerry Springer was on. I have always thought it a bad mix to have Americans interviewed on Australian talk shows, due to them feeling superior and often rude, but this interview was extremely painful to watch. It shouldn't have been aired at all.

Overall, a terrible talk show, that they ripped of the very funny Kumars at no.42.

And whats the point of the parents and the brother. The brother isnt even greek and the parents hardly speak and when they do, its not even funny!

This shows seriously needs a overhaul on interview taxtics (read a page out of Andrew Dentons book!) or pull the plug and put something decent on.

Very Good Talk Show!, 5 June 2003

The best bit about Micallef Tonight is the jokes Shaun pulls off that just make me crack up, because it makes it look unintentional.

Rove talks up his show at the start and 30 mins into the show its like errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr boorrrrrrrrrrrring. I hate when he is interviewing overseas guests because he can't control the interview properly and he appears a novice.

Anyway Shaun is cool, but I like watching Enough Rope with Andrew Denton. He lets his guests talk without interrupting (ie Rove!) and they are genuinely interesting people eg, Rene Rivkin was the best interview ive seen in ages.
