Hands up in the air

After watching The 7pm Project last Friday (21/8), it’s time to coin a new word: “Martin”. As in “to martin: to appear on a panel show and spend the whole night desperately trying to jump in with a joke, only to be talked over by someone far less funny but much, much pushier”. As for the opposite situation – where you’re the one doing all the talking, despite the fact you have nothing useful to say – we already have a word for that: to langbroek.

Let’s just hope SBS’s latest panel show, the history based AD/BC (starts this Thursday, 8.30pm), handles things a bit better: reportedly Tony Martin will be appearing on 12 of the 26 episode run, and it’s doubtful anyone wants to see him martin his way through week after week.
