  1. A bit tone deaf given the current climate. Watching real estate agents buy billionaires a new home while people struggle to even earn a salary in these crazy COVID times isn’t very appealing.

    1. Exactly. And I go to the streaming services to escape stuff like this that is all over free-to-air. If Amazon Prime is going to spend money on local content, I would prefer it to be scripted, giving work to writers, actors and crew who are finding things so tough right now.

      1. Hey – at least they are spending on Australian productions. A tenth of the subscriber numbers of Netflix and have Back to the Rafters, Heartbreak High, this & more in production.
