I just sat through an excruciating half hour of badly produced Australian drama.
I don't understand why there are so many BADLY written, acted, directed and produced Australian drama shows on.
Actually I do. Television seems to be a dying form here. Especially free to air television. As a result little, if any, money is spent on developing the medium.
Recently I have seen some very predictable story lines that have annoyed me to distraction.
I must say that there are very few drama shows from any country that are interesting. Last night I watched an episode of The Bill. I hadn't watched this in about 7 years. Should have left it to what I remember from 7 years ago. I was so disappointed.
Then we get imports from the US which are poor copies (word for word!) of English drama. 'Life on Mars' is an example of this. I loved the English version of this. It was quirky but I feel that the US version doesn't make the mark. I don't understand why as it is almost an exact copy.
I will have to stay with quirky comedies.
