  1. Don’t mind Celebrity Apprentice but getting more and more frustrated that Martha keeps being saved from firing. She did a crap job in her self-appointed ‘head chef’ role in the dumpling challenge last week but somehow Olivia got canned instead. Then she did a terrible job as project manager last night yet was still not fired.

  2. Really enjoying Celebrity Apprentice this year, it has all the drama that Big Brother is missing. The Boardroom is great viewing although some of Lord Sugar’s decisions have been baffling. Maybe that is deliberate to add more drama to the show.

  3. TV free to air is such a bore at night time. Repeat after repeat of the same movies is what annoys us. At least the afternoon movies on Sunday have been good with good ole’ John Wayne. I hadn’t seen Hatari or Donovan’s Reef for a while.

      1. Hardly ‘new’ though-that film has been shown many times over the last 18 months, along with most of the ‘PG’ rated stuff during the day and into the evening.

  4. And what a first class piece of bunkum that Seven Spotlight ( awful name by the way I thought it was a show about a fabric store ) …Ah yes, Ye Olde UFO cover-ups…anyway we viewers love our ET’s and conspiracies don’t we ? C’Mon Seven how about some Nazi treasure hunters on the trail of $900 billion dollars in plundered gold and gems hidden in the Outback – I’m sure you will find some crackpot searching for it …

    1. Myself and a couple of other ‘crackpots’ tracked one of these objects in the ops room of an Australian warship off the NSW coast in the 70’s. ‘UFO’ is a military term simply stating it is unidentified and unknown, no more, no less. It is up to an individual to come to a conclusion based on their belief of the evidence,

      1. I watched the UFO show on seven and I thought it was very interesting. I would much rather have watched that than 60 minutes and their feature about ScoMo and Jacinda Ardern and their trade talks in New Zealand. Really Nine, WTF were you thinking?

  5. And Spotlight used my earlier comment
    in the opening titles. That’s OK. For those asking “Who is Arthur C. Clarke?” read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_C._Clarke#Futurism
