It’s not a com­edy but you won’t stop laugh­ing if you ever watched this de­fi­cient lo­cal drama on StarSat’s StarTimes One chan­nel. Stilted, with bad act­ing, cam­era work, sound and ter­ri­ble scripts, this “med­i­cal fam­ily drama” scraped the bot­tom of the bar­rel.

This em­bar­rass­ing lo­cal sci-fi drama – first aired on BET (DStv 129) and then e.tv – about a man, played by Pa­cou Mu­tombo, find­ing a crys­tal and trans­form­ing into a “su­per­hero” was a shock­ingly bad and cringe­wor­thy fail. Not even the af­ter­noon fare for tod­dlers on Dis­ney shows is such dreck.

The year’s worst lo­cal show was in­dica­tive of just how far SABC3 has re­gressed. The Real Housewives-type rip-off, done with six “who are these peo­ple?” women, their hang­ers-on and ut­terly atro­cious pro­duc­tion val­ues made the Kar­dashi­ans look like Na­tional Ge­o­graphic. – Thi­nus Fer­reira
