  1. Kitty Flanagan commanded the stage on TGYH, she was utterly hilarious. But it’s Guy Montgomery that has surprised me in his two appearances… definitely my favourite newcomer of the contestants in what was an all together pretty excellent revival. And of course I want more.

  2. A shame Ch10 bumped 5 bedrooms finale, luckily I noticed and could adjust my PVR, then I realised that RFDS has moved to Wednesdays from Tuesdays on 7 next week….
    Mistreating dramas ain’;t the best way to keep viewers watching.

  3. I had hoped Neighbours would be a better lead in for 10 News and improve their numbers….seems to have done the opposite?!….I like all the presenters…the week day weather guy that took over from Tim… I find less appealing…I go to 9 news at 6PM when he comes on.

  4. MKR voting is a flawed system. Contestants voting on fellow contestants. One team voted out due to ‘strategic’ low voting by the team in danger of elimination. Now it seems the show is about to morph into a clone of MasterChef.

    1. The judges can compensate though. Only way to avoid that would be if the contestant’s votes are kept secret until the final instant restaurant then revealed at the end of the last instant restaurant so noone knows who is on the bottom. One thing I couldn’t stand about last nights’ episode was the overplay of references to the bottom team being worried, then not so worried then worried again about elimination. If all the talk about potential elimination was eliminated, the episode could have been at least 15 minutes shorter.
