Just in case you didn’t catch it, Jo Case from Melbourne’s Wheeler Centre published an interview with one of us yesterday. Sadly it hasn’t got any comments yet, so why not make a change from venting your spleen here and give the Wheeler Centre website’s moderator something to do? Or just be lazy and post something here.
Either way, we’d be interested to know what you think. Do you care that we don’t give our names? Is our approach to reviewing totally wrong?
And while we’re here, thanks to Jo Case and all at the Wheeler Centre for giving us the best publicity we’ve had since that time Julia Morris mentioned us on The Project. We had five likes on Facebook for this, it’s like we’re a proper blog!
I like your approach to reviewing. I’ll admit, I’m curious as to who is behind the concealing cybermasks of ‘beanisacarrot’ etc. But ultimately it doesn’t matter. You guys are a rarity not just in Australian comedy but in Australian reviewing more generally. You are prepared to call something out as shit if it is, indeed, a steaming turd pile. God it would be good if someone did the same to ‘Packed to the Rafters’ or hip Australian Cinema whatever horseshit yoof band is hot on JJJ this week; circle-jerks don’t help audiences filter out the good from the bad and they don’t encourage the artists from creating anything better. So keep doing what you’re doing.
Knocking back paid work in the Oz TV industry so you can keep bagging it out. That’s what I call dedication to one’s craft! Keep up the good work chaps.
Now, if only someone would do something similar for Oz movies…
You guys are amazing and I know first hand how much you annoy people in the industry, because these tv fuckwits know you’re completely right.
Hmm it’s interesting for a small blog you’d think you guys wouldn’t cause so much ire. Comedy at the ABC seems like a closed shop with the same names and companies showing up so it’s not like you’re making them lose work.
Maybe it’s simply that you’re calling them out as the chancers they are?
