You’d swear Gordon Ramsay’s language is the only thing to talk about on TV. But what about Stephen Quartermain? And Two and a Half Men?
from I. Smith, Geelong A POOR shopkeeper cries: ‘‘Oh, woe is me. I am bankrupt and nobody loves me.’’ Then a handsome blue-eyed, blond-haired stranger in a white jacket walks up and says: ‘‘Do not despair. Believe in me, I will save you.’’ But the man does not believe and fire and brimstone spew from the stranger’s mouth. ‘‘You want proof of my power?’’ he shouts. ‘‘I will show you.’’ Next morning the shopkeeper’s business has changed into a magnificent palace. He begins kissing the stranger’s feet. ‘‘Oh, master,’’ he wails. ‘‘You are truly the one.’’ Gordon Ramsay smiles and walks away to the next unbeliever and does it all over again. His show should be classified as a repeat.
from P. & J. DeBrevi, Altona Meadows IF YOU’VE ever watched Ramsay’s Kitchen, I am sure you will wonder how it ever got anM rating. It is full of ‘‘f’’ and ‘‘c’’ words— in my opinion, totally unsuitable for the new 8.30pm slot. Put it back to 9.30pm.
from Not Happy I’M really annoyed with Channel 10’s HD channel, which is an absolute joke. Why is it that they program Nascars but never show them?
from Norm, Somerville STEPHEN Quartermain is a professional journalist but continues to say ‘‘could of’’ and ‘‘should of’’. You would think that somebody at Channel 10 would tell him. He needs to be ‘‘learned’’ how to speak English.
from Can It Charlie, email CHARLIE Sheen in Two and a Half Men must think he’s the funniest person on the planet. Every time he opens his mouth the audience goes into hysterical laughter. Unfortunately, all I do is take another headache tablet.
Not Half good
from Sean, email SHAUN (Guide, March 19) does not know what he is talking about. Two and A Half Men is one of the best comedies I’ve seen— it nearly compares to Seinfeld.
from Paul, email I WAS shocked by Shaun’s comments about Two and a Half Men. I think it’s the funniest show on TV. I love every minute of it.
And another thing
from George, Doncaster I’D like to say to Shaun that everyone’s humour differs and I doubt he’d be in the majority.
from Jacinta and Andrew, email WIN TV advertises its Wide World of Sport and Rugby League’s 100 Years and then goes ahead and shows the bloody stupid Gilmore Girls while game of the day is Storm v Sharks. Nine and WIN suck.
from Ashley, Rowville WHY do Australian shows now copy the Americans by showing us what is coming up after the break? I do not want to see what is going to happen before it happens. It spoils the show and puts me off. Luckily, I can fast-forward these spoilers when I record some programs, but I’d wish they’d stop.
from Ella, email TO LAURA (Guide, March 12): I too have noticed the editing of Friends by Ten, not to mention the fast play that makes them move at twice the correct speed. Soon we’ll be watching ads with short program breaks. When quality and quantity are gone, what are we left with?
We’re polls apart
from Frank and Vera, email WHY DO we have to be bombarded with the American election night after night. A short bit in the news every now and then would be all right, but this will go on for months. Who cares anyway?
