Room 101

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Satur­day, SBS, 8.30pm

De­spite be­ing inspired by the tor­ture room in Ge­orge Or­well’s novel Nine­teen Eighty-Four, this new Aussie take on the BBC com­edy of the same name of­fers plenty to smile about. Hosted by vet­eran fun­ny­man Paul McDer­mott (right), view­ers will get twice the laughs tonight as Room 101 pre­mieres with a de­light­ful dou­ble-episode in which spe­cial guests re­veal their pet peeves and try to con­vince McDer­mott to con­sign those cer­tain things, peo­ple or con­cepts to the Room 101 vault (the idea be­ing that do­ing so ban­ishes them from the world for­ever). First up are SBS favourites Ju­lia Zemiro and the hi­lar­i­ous H.G. Nel­son, who each share sev­eral unique things they would like to never see again.
