Of course, you don't need a TiVo to realise that television is completely extinct in Australia. You'd begin to suspect the news isn't even put together here and that they make the weather reports up. Just draw a map of Australia (don't forget Tasmania), zoosh some squiggles all over it, wiggle them round a bit, throw in a few likely temperatures for three days and, hey presto, Roberta's yr aunty.
OK, so I'm sick of being reduced to dodgy (often stodgy) British crime series and worthy docos on SBS. And if they show another program 'reconstructing' life in ancient Egypt, I'll start reciting the book of the dead.
Yup, I watch television, I'm no purist, but it's getting to be a rare event. It's even hard to find quality trash these days.
