  1. Holiday and Seasonal Commercials

    I'd like more Australian commercials to reflect the reality of an Australian summer in December... you know, 40 degree C summer scorchers? not snow and frost and Santa in his winter suit...
  2. Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    All those winter-themed Christmas commercials in the middle of our summer scorchers baffle me. Santa in shorts, eating prawns is good but the shops have fake snow and frost, and Santa in his winter suit.
  3. dead people are not "former" is often not remembered in modern times, It's "U.S. president Lyndon Johnson" not "former U.S. president Lyndon Johnson".
  4. The Conners: Speculation and Spoilers

    I'd have thought we'd moved beyond "I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar" 1970s bullplop and the cult of the single mother.
  5. From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Diana was a d*ckhead. Her attempts to get attention were rightly ridiculed by British comedies ("What's she going to do next - jump in front of a speeding Hoover?"). Stuff the Saint Diana myth - just because she was a woman, doesn't mean she should get sympathy.

    I hope Charlotte doesn't turn out to be a tomboy because she'll be expected to wear a dress at least sometimes as part of her role. Remember how the Queen Mum once stated she visited some little kids and they were disappointed because she wasn't wearing a tiara like they expected?
  7. Holiday and Seasonal Commercials

    With Christmas ads with young children, you have to wonder which number take is the finished advert, given how difficult it would be filming an ad with a child young enough to make the parents in the audience go "awww!"..."
  8. How many of the adults are still alive? Not the younger ones like Almanzo etc.
  9. Sandra and Linda are just two who are like Doug Simpson - look way too old for school.
  10. Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    I wonder what the real Col. Sanders would think about his living on in KFC ads? Nothing like an animated corpse to sell things to families...
  11. The Conners: Speculation and Spoilers

    I just felt that Mark should have somehow gotten the happy life Glenn Quinn never got. Sandy Harper in "Holby City" is still alive off-screen in Australia despite Laura Sadler's death from a balcony fall while high on cocaine.
  12. Things That Happen On TV But Not In Real Life

    real serial killers usually just surrender to the police when they're caught, but the TV serial killer has back-up plan on top of back-up plan to get away. The writers want to create the next Moriarty, but fail to realize that most real serial killers have the wrong psychology to be a Moriarty.
  13. The Conners: Speculation and Spoilers

    it's sad that they felt they had to kill off Glenn Quinn's character rather than have him live on off screen. The character doesn't always have to die with the actor.

    Jocelyn is out because the kid would hear "'cause that's what your tits are doing right now!" after she hit puberty.
  15. From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Princess Dorothea would become Princess Diarrhea pretty darn quick...
