    1. Totally agree Sunny.
      This week’s ep was brilliant television – potential award-winning performances from Sam Reid and Marg Downey, while William McInnes’ one-word expletive reaction fits the scenario like a glove.
      Looking forward to the final episode this Sunday to see if everything gets tied up (dunno how), or to whet the appetite for season 2.

  1. It’s not helping the FBI cause when TEN tosses in three repeat episodes on Sunday nights. That turn-off should be rectified when the new eps from S4 start to drop later this month. They start on CBS on Sept 21.
    But how many have gone elsewhere?

    1. Outstanding results for the exceptional and addictive Newsreader, almost makes its first rating seem pointless to report. That show alone shows the absolute power of gathering all the ratings from all platforms after a week (yes aware it includes regional and the first number last week doesn’t, but still).
