    Channel 9 have got no ideas of programming outside of reality shows and sport. Their factuals like , Embarrassing Bodies, Life on the Dole, and Walking the Nile are pretty weak that fail everytime to attract any reasonable interest. RBT just seems like a cheap low budget copy of Highway Patrol that just drags on. Channel Nine reluctance to invest in any quality drama shows went out the door years ago and now viewers are left with boring and depressing factuals that barely rate anything.

    I watched Gattaca last night as I was in the mood for something contemplative and I hadn’t seen it for ages. Glad I did. I had forgotten how many well-known actors were in it.
