  1. Seven= Rubbish

    Enjoy it while it lasts. I’d sooner buy shares in a video rental chain than in a TV station. Treating the viewers with contempt is a about to bite, and hard.

    I don’t watch reality tv. Absolute garbage. My kitchen rules, the block, big brother, master chef etc. Trash tv. I would rather watch homicide, division 4, matlock police or basically anything from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Abc and sbs are far better to watch these days than the commercial channels. Ch31 is also better. Beside sport and maybe the news which i can watch the commercial channels is filled with a lot of trailer trash reality tv. Not for me.

    1. Irvine

      Yeah, definitely! I would rather watch blurry B/W but decent-quality programming on analogue than the rubbish we have on digital HDTV nowadays, and I wasn’t even around back when TV was in its prime!
