Sydney TV

I have written previously about Sydney television. Well, peripherally, anyway.

I'm not sure whether it is the summer doldrums or what, but there is absolutely NOTHING on television at the moment. When I say NOTHING in big capital letters like that, [aside of course from SBS news] I mean NOTHING. No-thing. Zero. Null. Nichts. Nada. Rien. Niets. Niente. Ничего.

They've even replaced 7pm Simpsons — which they originally replaced with Seinfeld, not too bad — with Becker. NOTHING.

When we were over in the US, I could almost always find something to watch. Probably something to do with the fact that there are over ten times as many people in the US as here, but nevertheless. On Sunday nights, they still have movies! What a treat! Not some re-run of a stupid Yank cop drama. What happened to the Sunday night movie, TV Network Programmers?

One benefit. I am getting heaps of work and reading done.
