User Reviews

One of the funniest, most clever "Talk" shows in history
25 September 1998 | by Ablaze-2See all my reviews

On Wednesday night, a lot of people tune in for this little beauty of a show. A bunch of people sitting around a desk talking about the weeks news around them - No big deal, but the people on this show make it worth it. Witty comments fly, jokes get thrown from end of the desk to another... so on. Probably the most intellectually interesting shows on Australian TV.
