  1. Vera never fails to impress in the ratings.It must be easily the highest rating drama on tv,in both the overnights and the consolidated figures.

  2. I watched ‘Abandoned Engineering’ on SBS2 as per usual-they certainly cover a lot of widely varied subjects-the Lil Abner/Dogpatch theme park last week was a hoot-odd that the USAF base segment this week featured only footage of the A10 Thunderbolt II ground attack aircraft as it doesn’t carry any nuclear weapons at all which was the focus of that bit of the show.
    I gave up on the following AK47 doco after 15 minutes-I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a poorly constructed program so full of basic errors of fact-reached the Curse of the Curse of Oak Island levels!

  3. Wow, the biggest TV night of the week dwindled into SBS territory for Seven, in any other era the board would’ve ousted their CEO and chief programmer, but this is 2023 and anything goes it seems…

    1. Good news is Dancing with the Stars is coming back into the schedule to fill the void that will be left by idol… Nursing homes will be thrilled!

      1. Referencing nursing homes is ageism and a reflection on you. There is no need for it. Older and younger people enjoy dance and I assume you do as per your comment (if genuine).You do realise you can dance anywhere, I busts moves throughout this day if I hear music or I’ve got my buds in and I’m not in a nursing home. I’ve danced at the shopping centre, on tables, in the shower, at the park and whilst I clean my house and I don’t care who sees me really because I enjoy it, so dancing is not an exclusive for nursing homes, but tolerance for older people comes to mind on that score.

      1. I’ve been watching Full Frontal season 3 on DVD, and it feels like we may need one of those Eric Bana “Aw, der!”s here, what do you reckon? ☺️ Cheers
