    1. I did not like the previous SAS season but the opening episode of this one was encouraging. The Jordanian desert is a good location for this type of thing and feels very different than the Central Highlands shown previously. Pacing and editing were also okay even when it ran one hour and forty five minutes.

      Jason Akermanis though seems to have walked out at a pointlessly early juncture.

      1. Jason made it pretty clear he doesn’t like authority so what was he expecting? It’s the military!

        I didn’t have any issue with the runtime personally and SAS usually runs between an hour and an hour fifteen in usual episodes and is much less investment to some other reality tv.

  1. How many people would know who Charlotte Crosby is ? Certainly not me, but it’s not aimed at my demographic though I enjoy watching it, with my finger on the mute button for when the stupid people doing the guessing start talking.

    1. Comparison is moot. HYBPA rates well as it’s not directly against The Block. TMS would probably rate better (as would most shows) is it wasn’t against The Block. And HYBPA has the lead-in from TMS reveal, which it wouldn’t have at 7.30.

    2. The Masked Singer does OK picking up viewer who flick over from The Block, MKR etc during ads to catch exciting bits. HYBPA? and CS both benefit from offering an alternative at 8:45, and picking viewers after The Block MKR etc. finish.
