  1. No wonder Graham Norton did so poorly I can’t stand listening to Dave Grohl don’t get me wrong the foo fighters rock but he is just unbearable and it seems SBS only did so well because of another Michael Mosley health special

  2. We liked New Gold Mountain & will watch the remaining 3 episodes.

    Unfortunately 16:9 (1.78:1) TV’s don’t do justice to TV shows filmed in wider aspect ratios … both NGM & Frayed S2 have both been filmed with a 2.21:1 aspect ratio. The result is the good old “letter box” affect and the wider the aspect ratio the more TV “real estate” gets wasted to fit into a 16:9 frame without cropping the left/right edges.

  3. I think Seven shot AGT in the foot by waiting instead of showing it alongside the US. Must say though its quite a fail really given all the promos i’ve seen for it. I’m honestly surprised they didn’t test The Voice USA instead due to how well it did locally but then again i guess they don’t want to over-saturate the market even though it is airing on 7Flix. But at the moment, tv is quite boring. Not much on. Not into The Block or Masterchef so Big Brother will be good when it comes.
