  1. The Weekly with Charlie Pickering At Home Alone Together lost viewers in its second week,

    To the surprise of no one. Leaving aside the subjective nature of “funny”, and the turn-around time the writers are working with; there’s probably a good 15 minutes program in there, not thirty.

    I’m starting to think I should watch repeats of ‘Gavin and Stacey’ instead.

  2. Maev....Sydney

    I watched Bodyguard this week….it had everything going for it…started well….but…
    Given the person he was guarding was female…and the two bosses also female….I was really just about done with the constant ma’am….it started to annoy me…
    Masterchef…just awesome…it is something out of the box this year!

  3. Really getting into The Secrets She Keeps. That final scene last night was chilling with the grave sites.

    I’m glad Masterchef went down the vegan challenge last night. I’m personally not vegan but always felt they should do a challenge like this one for something different and gives the home viewer different ideas.

    • Oh my gosh yes! That last scene on The Secrets She Keeps was pretty shocking to watch.

      Good to see Masterchef back in the magic million, this season is really something in terms of diversity and a variety of challenges in comparison to its previous ones.

      • Yes MC has been excellent this year. I wasn’t sure about the judges, but I really enjoy all 3 of them. Loved Jock’s little dance number. The judges are a breath of fresh air this year.
