Don’t let the blanket ads, Zip Cold/Water tap talk in the office or a Ray Warren endorsement fool you, there’s plenty to be enjoyed on FTA TV than Reality TV and the other assorted dross that the channels spend their money on.
As with anything on our website, we’re not about joining in on anything popular, we’re down at the other end of the pool championing the lesser known and the lesser liked servings available.
So we’ll take the hard work out of the TV Guide and highlight or favourites and all the sport on offer. Don’t be fooled that just because football season is over there’s no sport on.
BEST OF THE WEEK
FOOD DOUBLE – MAN FINDS FOOD + CHOW MASTER (Tues, 7Mate, 8:30)
Man vs Food man is back and has some friends along for the heart attack. Marvel at the amount of food on offer, heart defibrillator at the ready, your eyes may put on weight just watching.
BATHURST is a close second – not a better excuse to lounge it up all day on Sunday.
WORST OF THE WEEK
Take you pick: Big Brother with the most inane conversation in the galaxy or Dancing with the “Stars” that has too much Ricki Lee for our liking. Sure everyone will say “You don’t have to watch them”. Thanks for the advice. We won’t.
