Trivia

Series 2 was broadcast after the tragic early death of John Clarke, one of New Zealand's finest comedians and satirists "stolen" by Australia with a captivating smile and always a twinkle in his eye. Clarke died on 9 April 2017 while hiking in Victoria's Grampians National Park aged 68. The final credits simply say "for John", and Australians all knew exactly what that meant. See more »

Opportunity Lost
29 October 2015 | by jamesmouleSee all my reviews

Australia now has several ex-PMs, all of whom are open to ridicule and make the news for the wrong reasons. If the cartoonists can find humour in the lives of former prime ministers, why couldn't the writers of this series? The premise on which the series in based should have provided lots of good ideas. Instead, we have appalling over-acting and quite stupid story lines, far removed from the hilarious reality that the real ex-PMs provide. Consider what the writers of "Yes Minister" could have done with such a scenario. Where that series had wit and satire, this show has slapstick. After two episodes, the writers were burnt out.
