Speed up party boy Corey Worthington’s rehabilitation and Ryan Fitzgerald’s speech, but please slow down the Lotto results
Spoilt for choice
from Ian, email PARTY boy Corey Worthington went on Big Brother not only to earn big money, but to show Australia he’s not all bad. But it didn’t work. Putting a spoilt kid in with other spoilt kids was never going to work.
Quick on the draw
from Elliot, Williamstown I AGREE with Patricia from Carrum (Guide, May 21), the Lotto draw is too fast. I don’t even have time to grab a pen. I like to see the numbers drop and have always bought a ticket and watched the draw. They need to allow the presenter to take a breath, and I also like to see what Marianne is wearing. Give us back the full draw.
Draw days numbered
from Chris, Melbourne I’VE read that the powers that be plan to shorten the Lotto draw. Do they want us to only see the numbers?
Pricked by roses
from Arthur, Donvale OH DEAR, we were so looking forward to seeing Kerry Armstrong in Bed of Roses, with happy memories of SeaChange. From the start we were thrown in the deep end, with no attempt to set the scene or to warm to the characters. Everything has become so over the top, exaggerated and beyond belief, the events cannot be taken seriously. Maybe it’s supposed to be a comedy— we can’t decide and are disappointed.
Banking on blame
from Max, Rowville I’M SICK of seeing stories on shows such as A Current Affair about people who are in debt and can’t repay it. They blame banks and stores for their woes, and don’t even think about the fact that they weren’t forced to take the card, they chose to. It’s their fault that they spent that much money when they didn’t have it, so how can they be so stupid as to blame someone else?
At home with James
from Fay, Warragul SPEAK for yourself, Gag Him (Guide, May 21). I love Darren James and am very interested in his prattle. When others do that show ( Buy, Swap and Sell on 3AW), they forget to repeat phone numbers and forget to ask the suburb from where people are ringing. But Darren never forgets.
Time to make a swap
from Dicky. Dandenong WHY doesn’t 3AW ever give opportunities to new talent? It’s time that Darren James was moved on.
Slow burn on Fitzy
from Patsy, Balwyn I SAW former Big Brother housemate Ryan Fitzgerald doing an ad for a chain of sandwich shops. Does this mean if I try their product I will start talking in slow-motion like he does?
Send brats packing
from In Stitches, email ONE program is about a bunch of unknowns living in five-star luxury with nothing to do except bitch at each other; the other is about a bunch of minor celebrities living in tents in the jungle who have to face their worst fears to get a decent feed. Wake up Big Brother and make the spoiled brats in the house earn their keep. I’m a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here! is the funniest, most entertaining program on TV. I have laughed out loud for the first time in years while watching this show. By comparison, Big Brother is like watching paint dry.
Lost the plot
from Lost It, email CONGRATULATIONS to Channel 7 for again disappointing viewers. Lost has now gone to 10.30pm. Everyone talks about ratings, and of course they will fall because the later you put these shows on the less viewing audience you are going to attract. Lost has a good following but, like all the networks, Seven constantly change the programming schedules.
