033: MINUS POINTS FOR PERSONALITY

"Good news everyone! Report to my bedroom for a private exhibition!"
- Professor Hubert Farnsworth


So I'm eating my breakfast cereal in front of the television this morning, as I do most mornings. Byt my house is an ice box at the moment (us being in the middle o' winter and all). So I decide to watch the free to air TV in my room.

Here in this pay TV-less environment I was exposed the oversized cranium and hairpiece known as Kerrie-Anne.

Who put this prehistoric creature on television?? I mean she has zero personality and minus zero tact. She often cuts off her interviewees mid sentence, butting in with her ill-informed questions. Seriously - I thought she was dead.

For those of you that know me, I'm probably not telling you anything new. I've long had a problem with the Australian public's willingness to accept and even embrace the blandest of TV personalities. Without this vanilla mentality, people like Rove McManus and Darryl Somers would be working in a job like mine.

I love TV. I have had a life long love affair with television. In the absence of fulfilling relationships and family bonds, it's been a beacon of light. A babysitter, friend…. Secret lover :-)

But to get to the point where I'd rather turn that old witch off and eat my rice bubbles in complete silence, is unbelievable.

Maybe tomorrow I'll watch Bert.




the end.

Morning TV sucks - which is why always go to the cartoon network. Unless you don't have free cable like I do. Then you're screwed.
