TV Tonight understands Shaun Micallef found that the shooting schedule was so taxing that by the end he struggled to enjoy the experience.
No doubt being in just about every scene was a very big ask for the comedian and sometime actor.
Ratings also didn’t hit the heights. While it was a whimsical idea, personally I found the execution needed either a little more comedy, a little more jeopardy or a little more offbeat flavour. But what a bloody hard genre to get right. Good on them for trying something a bit different to what we’re usually served up.
The good news, as previously reported, is that there will be more Mad as Hell on ABC1 in 2014.
