THE WALL

Seven, 7pm

Herald Sun - Hit - - TOP PICKS -

Now in its third week, The Wall con­tin­ues to at­tract very de­cent rat­ings. But I can’t be alone in strug­gling to un­der­stand the con­vo­luted rules. It takes most of the hour to fig­ure it out, by which time you might as well keep watch­ing to find out if the con­tes­tants will ac­tu­ally take home any money. It’s a nice con­cept: teams are peo­ple who de­serve a free kick, and host Axle White­head does his best to keep up morale. But the ex­e­cu­tion is long­winded, and play­ers shout­ing at the wall, as if to en­cour­age it, is odd.
