Six TV Legal Cases – Gurgler Six Pack

Channel 7 suing Channel 9 - we say sue tehm all with more TV Legal Cases

In the one of the newest TV Legal Cases Channel 7 are reportedly suing Channel 9 over newest cooking show on the block Hotplate being too similar to Channel 7’s Cook, Cry, Repeat Fest aka My Kitchen Rules. More proper reporting on the story here.

Laughable really and reeking of pot-kettle that one channel can sue another given that most television shows these days are a copy or “homage” or reworking to something else in another country or time. Hopefully a class action against The Voice and 60 Minutes is coming. Give Erin Brockovich or Lionel Hutz a call.

I hope FTA never wonder why so many people download.

So if we’re talking laughable legal cases against a TV show or channel, we thought we’d get in on the action and throw a few around.

THE GURGLER VS CHANNEL 10
CRIME: REMAKING IT’S A KNOCKOUT
For many the red, blue, yellow, green colours mixed with the hyena pitched gaffaws of one of McDonald sisters and smooth professional sounds of Billy J Smith all rolled into one fantastic show – It’s A Knockout is a childhood memory that lingers with joy. Many can still remember giant heads, dragon wall climbing games, penguins trying to catch water in a bucket with fond memories. The amount of hits on Youtube proves that. Follow our link below for a sample.

So when Channel announced a few years ago it was coming back, we like most rubbed our hands. What eventuated was worse than the worse you could expect, and not even HG Nelson could this giant turd. Gone were the stadiums, the state based comp, the treasured games, or anything good. Instead of wasting the money they did on the remake, just replay old episodes. Sorted.
VREDICT – GUILTY – hard to argue against the evidence.

THE GURGLER vs CHANNEL 9
CRIME: Ruining Summer and making the Cricket so unwatchable.
From hearing about lunch orders, previous exploits, over the top enthusiasm, and the fact just about every memorable moment revolves around the commentators careers, the Channel 9 summer of cricket is at the stage when mute is standard issue. The pending arrival of Michael Clarke to the love in may just about tip most over the edge to ABC Grandstand. Especially when it’s all about him for the first few tests. Like all of the tests of his playing career.
VERDICT: Jail for all bar Mark Taylor and Mark Nicholls. No parole for Michael Slater.

THE GURGLER vs CHANNEL 10
CRIME: MASTERCHEF (and other cooking shows to be fair) CREATING A GENERATION OF FOOD WANKERS
No longer is a meal a simple thing. There’s half dried, semi blanched, gluten free, wank drizzled with jus on every plate thanks to cooking show. Masterchef gets the blame as it is the original. Only on a food wanker show can a sandwich making contest produce a deconstructed sandwich with no bread on a breadboard.
VREDICT: Bread* and Water. *Bread is not GF or V.

THE GURGLER vs CHANNEL 7
CRIME: DANCING WITH THE STARS.
As above, for turning average Joes into Dancing experts for 10 weeks a year. It’s not bad enough that we have to have it explained to us the level and reason for their celebrity, but the critiquing of the dancing doesn’t get much worse. Actually it does, keep reading.
VERDICT: It’s on Channel 7, so get off on a warning as we’ll never watch it.

THE GURGLER vs CHANNEL 9
CRIME: ACA
The worst half an hour on television by far, and despite it’s self rating of Brisbane/Queensland’s number 1, it is really a number two. It should be punished for preying on the less cynical of the world for the ridiculous rubbish they attempt to pass off as news. Hopefully not all of them believe it. Or that it is news. One silver lining is that there’s only one left with the disappearance of TT. No cold war of LCD news is around anymore.
VERDICT: Death row, please.

THE GURGLER vs CHANNEL 10/9
CRIME: For bringing in/back Big Brother
Rewarding idiots for being themselves and declaring a winner who actually hasn’t done anything except talk about themselves and carry on about the most tedious of issues. Only enjoyable thing is the by product of sad ex celebrity stories and Hotdogs Up Late Game Show.
VERDICT: Life

Enjoy

THE GURGLER vs CHANNEL 9
CRIME: Broncos most Friday nights.
OK, so this is the seventh, but it’s warranted. Channel 9 treat their Rugby League like their Cricket, they’ll tell us what they like and insist it’s what we like. And, don’t dare to criticise. Thank heaven for the new TV deal, Shame it went to 9.
VERDICT: Parole in 2018.
