PRE­VI­OUSLY ON TELE­VI­SION

Townsville Bulletin - - PLAY -

is talk­ing about Game of Thrones. Don’t stress! There are no spoil­ers ahead.

I just feel so out of it, like I’m not “hip and with it”. I stopped watch­ing Thrones way back in sea­son three and I feel like it would take way too much time and ef­fort to try to catch up now, so I’ve just de­cided to let it go.

I think I need to re­assess my TV watch­ing though. Yes, I’ve seen ev­ery episode of Se­in­feld, Friends, The Of­fice ( UK ver­sion of course) and Full House ( no, not Fuller House. I’m talk­ing the ’ 90s Full House), but that doesn’t count for any­thing. What have I been do­ing with my life? I’ve missed ev­ery pop­u­lar TV show in the past 20 years.

So to get a grasp of what I’ve missed out on, I an­noyed a few of my mates and asked them to ex­plain the best of the best us­ing five words only. Here’s what they came up with. Peo­ple are lost. Are they? Se­rial killer mur­ders bad peo­ple.

Booze, sex, cheat­ing, ad­ver­tis­ing and suits. Funny, ridicu­lous, clever, fam­ily, Ja­son­bate­man­ishot.

Do­ing bad for fam­i­lies’ ben­e­fit.

Drugs, cops, pol­i­tics, mur­der and me­dia. And fi­nally back to to find out what’s been hap­pen­ing since I left: Boobs, blood, pol­i­tics, drag­ons, and boobs. So … much of the same, it seems. Af­ter those de­scrip­tions though, I’ve de­cided to start with Ar­rested Devel­op­ment as the word “ja­son­bate­man­ishot” has drawn me in.
