Break off Engagement
Letter of the week
from Luke, Geelong West I CAN’T understand why Channel 10 cut Back to You but continues to show the infuriatingly weak Rules of Engagement. The show stopped being funny at episode two, but Ten insists on putting it on at prime time and calling it Australia’s favourite comedy. I’ll admit that Patrick Warburton is quite humorous, but David Spade is immature and lame. Do us a favour, Ten, and take it off. How about showing 30 Rock at a decent hour? It cleaned up at the Golden Globes, but I’m yet to see it.
Bow wow wowser
from Rex Fan, Hampton Park I WATCHED a couple of episodes of Rex in Rome. No thanks. The old ones are better.
from Dale, Box Hill IF COL of Carnegie (Guide, Jan 14) taught his son a bit of respect for champions he wouldn’t wonder why ‘‘Old Man’’ Chappell is on the cricket commentary team. I wonder how Col will feel when he is older and the young ’uns think he should be seen and not heard. I bet he’s played the occasional game for his country, too— not!
Weak end, Andrew
from Michael, Ringwood North I AMa big fan of Weekend Sunrise but what spoils it for me is ‘‘Andrew O’Everywhere’s’’ inane attempts at humour. He seems to be the only one laughing.
Lame claim: (left to right) David Spade, Megyn Price and Patrick Warburton star in Ten’s Rules of Engagement.
