Unlike what they’d like you to believe, FTA (the wanky name that’s easier to type so get used to it) is not all light newsetainment, reality tears and Big Bang Theory.
Like most precious metals, they have to be carefully mined. This article hopes to give you 100% pure gold, and sort out the dross.
Each week, if we can be bothered we’ll pick out the best of FTA so tyou don’t have to buy the Sunday paper to do the same.
Plus we might share our thoughts on what the idiot box is up to.
BEST – SOUTH PARK – SBS2 – 8:30pm Thursday – Major Boobage. One of their finest episode with the subject of cheesing coming up. If you haven’t seen it then they can explain it, if you’ve seen it, surely another viewing is worth it.
BLURST – THE BATCHELOR – CH10 – Sometime this week – Truly awful, what the show needed was more women to claw over the bag of meat aka Batchelor. Would much prefer to see a bear as The Batchelor to see some real reality TV.
THE BATTLE – Seven Two vs GEM for the Tweed Blazer dollar – a parade of UK village shows and murder mysteries to keep the over 60’s happy.
