RED TAPE WAS NEVER SO MUCH FUN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

NOT since has an Aussie satire skew­ered the ridicu­lous bu­reau­cracy of gov­ern­ment as acutely as – which re­turns for its fourth sea­son this week. The mas­ter­ful Rob Sitch (above) an­chors this se­ries with aplomb as Tony Wood­ford, the voice of rea­son at the Nation Build­ing Au­thor­ity, an in­fra­struc­ture depart­ment short on logic. Tonight, he’s asked to sign off on a Tas­man port but is a tad alarmed by the com­pli­cated financing struc­ture that he dis­cov­ers in­volves Rhonda (Kitty Flanagan) con­sider using a real TV star to sex up the In­ter­gen­er­a­tional Re­port, an ex­pen­sive de­mo­graphic study con­sis­tently ignored by the public. It has all the ra­zor-sharp wit of the late, great John Clarke, with a re­fresh­ingly ir­rev­er­ent take on some of the breath­tak­ing id­iocy of public pol­icy-making to­day. At least the fund­ing of this Work­ing Dog com­edy is your tax­payer dol­lars put to good use. Bet­ter value than Question Time.
