  1. ‘Underbelly’ has a very odd running time-1.75 hours per half chock full of ads-makes one wonder whether it was really meant to be shown as 3 x1 hour eps.

  2. I rarely watch drama overnight these days and mainly stream on catch ups but being a Sunday night and having a interest in the story I watched Underbelly overnight and will do the same tonight. Perhaps more local drama should be programmed on a Sunday night to pull in overnight numbers.
