Gurglervision – FTA TV Preview

Don’t let the blanket ads, Zip Cold/Water tap talk in the office or a Ray Warren endorsement fool you, there’s plenty more to be enjoyed on FTA TV than Reality TV and the other assorted dross that the channels spend their money telling youi how you can’t miss it.

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 on a LiLo 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
CHASER’s MEDIA CIRCUS – new series will not doubt similar to the old stuff, but with the demise of Today Tonight, surely there’ll be less ammo. Probably not.
SOUTH PARK – THURSDAY 10:30pm – a repeat but one of the best with the introduction of Towelie into the South Park family.

WORST OF THE WEEK
GLEE THE CONCERT MOVIE – No doubt we could put Big Brother and Dancing with the “Stars” in every week, and we will. But  this we choose Glee purely because the other two we could sit through without a self-inflicted gun shot. Glee we couldn’t.
