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.
