• First Review: Masters of Horror 2

    This anthology series coming to the Showtime Channel will feature brand new stories by legendary directors. First up is the offering from Joe Dante, “The Screwfly Solution.” Best known for The Howling and Gremlins, Dante’s direction is like an out-of-control trainwreck in need of a decent script editor. Jason Priestley stars in a story about […]

  • First Review: Bastard Boys

    The Waterfront Strike of 1998 is the battle ground of the ABC’s next landmark drama, Bastard Boys. It may not sound like a particularly sexy setting but it is high in drama, emotions, politics, and especially performances. This mini-series is vast in scale, telling the story from four points of view over two nights. The […]

  • First Review: The King

    Talk about ambitious. We all knew and loved Graham Kennedy the performer. On In Melbourne Tonight, Blankety Blanks, Coast to Coast and even Funniest Home Videos he is burned into our minds and hearts as television history.

  • First Review: The Lost Tribes

    “No phone, no lights, no motorcar, not a single luxury. Like Robinson Crusoe it’s primitive as can be.” So went the jingle of Gilligan’s Island. And that single premise probably led to the modern day version of Survivor. But it’s also a tactic employed by the producers of The Lost Tribes. Based on a UK […]

  • First Review: Big Brother 7

    Last year Big Brother made news for all the wrong reasons, none of which need going over here. As interest groups, christians, talkback radio and parliamentarians debated the merits (or lack thereof) of the show, TEN was sent back to the drawing board to balance societal concerns and justify the show’s role on our screens.
