If you don’t want your name published, just say so. Caroline Wilson flicks her head back on Footy Classified? Surely somebody in the makeup department at Channel 9 could find a pin and put it in her hair.
Fat lot of good
from Disillusioned, email BIGGEST Loser? Biggest rig! The people producing this show obviously think the viewing public is a little thick in the head rather than the waistline. They aren’t even subtle about it. I’m switching off.
It’s all an act
from Ann, email IN ANSWER to ‘‘Acting the part’’ (Guide, Mar 18): I agree with Michael McCrae about Aaron Pedersen in City Homicide: that guy couldn’t act if his life depended on it. He is certainly wooden and he overacts. I’ve always thought that right from the word go. I don’t like him as an actor because he’s not.
Repeats too old
from Patricia, Viewbank WE ALL know the ABC repeats its night-time programs during the day, which is great for those who missed them at night, but why are The Collectors (2007), The Einstein Factor (2008) and The New Inventors (2008) programs from long ago shown rather than a repeat of the one from a few days ago?
from Geoff, email VEGA’S ID of the ’70s, ’80s and the best new songs is ridiculous considering they play ’60s and ’90s songs.
Cameras out of step
from Jamie Davin, Mulgrave CHANNEL 10 needs to drastically improve the camera angles and lighting choices made on So You Think You Can Dance. It’s very frustrating watching such quality dancing with such poor camerawork.
from Arch, Frankston GRANT Denyer reminds me of Trevor Marmalade. They both sit in the wings and interrupt their shows with ridiculous, unfunny comments. At least The Footy Show saw the light and flicked Marmalade. I’ll start watching Australia’s Got Talent again when Seven becomes similarly enlightened.
Keep in time
from Hayden, Heidelberg WHY are the 6.30pm current-affairs programs (particularly Channel 9’s) allowed to run up to 10 minutes overtime every night? This causes the following programs to be shown well after the advertised time. If a program is advertised at a particular time, surely it’s up to the station ethically and legally to hold to that time?
