2017 is about to sign off with the usual array of fireworks around the world, and within minutes or hours of the big blast many will make a resolution that very few will keep, so we offer up our List of Things to Avoid in 2018.
Our List of Things to Avoid in 2018 is our attempt to ensure your 2018 is the best year ever, and learn from some of the worst things from 2017.
BE CAREFUL WHO YOU VOTE FOR – THEY MIGHT JUST WIN
If 2017 proved one thing, is the end result in the USA may not be quite what a lot of people had voted for. Seemingly each day sees a new low benchmark attained, and it almost seems too surreal to be be true.
So with a Federal Election slightly possible in 2018, just look to Trump and vote with that in mind. Sure you might just get a tin foil Looney like Malcolm Roberts, but it could be much worse. Tony Abott could challenge Malcolm Turnbull.
ANYTHING AFTER THE TENNIS ON CHANNEL 7
If you watch more than a second of Channel 7 currently you will be promised riches beyond your wildest desires about their programming after the Tennis. Nothing good happens after the Tennis. Truth be told, nothing good happens during the Tennis. Nor on Channel Seven for that matter.
You may miss out on office talk about Cook the Cry, I mean MKR, and you’re welcome.
GROUND BREAKING NEW SOCIAL EXPERIMENT
For any show that is given the description of “ground breaking new social experiment” read “Shithouse Reality TV Mutton dressed as Lamb”.
A HARVEY WEINSTEIN CASTING CALL
If half the conduct coming out about the Hollywood big shot is true, the aspiring actors may be better off in the restaurants of LA waiting for another chance.
Should be an easy one to avoid, as he is attempting to avoid being Bernard Tomic himself. Hopefully we won’t be seeing much of the apathetic half smirk much in 2018.
If alleged conduct from the former Friday night TV doyen is to be believed, then it is best not to be left alone with him in any back yard, front yard, or house.
THE NEWS IN MAY…IF YOU DON’T LIKE ROYALS
One of TV’s most useless positions gets their time in the sun in May, when Royal Commentators will be sought after to provide as much filler as possible to the wedding of Harry and Meghan. Best avoided if you are anti-Monarchy.
THE WINTER OLYMPICS
They’ll be plenty of hype and slow motion action shots. The only saving grace for it is the decent timeslot for a change. Not enough for us to care mind you.
WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS PRESENTS……
Given all they have now is rugby league and cricket, and will provide the same “quality” coverage, it is certainly one of the Things to Avoid in 2018.
Given his tremendous 2017 in which he will likely wrap up our 2017 Jerk of the Year award, and his midas touch on any sporting team, Parra fans may well end up regretting his return.
