The Age has another too-fabulous list of “Fifty things we love about TV.”
Written and compiled by Andrew Murfett, Frances Atkinson, Paul Kalina, Greg Hassall, Matthew Burgess, Daniel Burt, Debi Enker, Melinda Houston, Craig Mathieson, Bridget McManus and Karl Quinn, it cherry-picks the best on the box, from an entire series to a solitary actor.
A year ago they ran a “Best on the Box” list. They make for wonderful reading.
Amongst some of their choices are:
The rise and rise of Offspring
That Homeland proved again free-to-air audiences want to watch smart TV
Game of Thrones – especially Peter Dinklage
Grand Designs Australia
Deborah Mailman: shining star
David Astle and Lily Serna on Letters and Numbers
….and there’s a whole lot more that are really worth your time perusing.
But sheesh, they left out Smash. Harsh!
There’s also one there that I have a huuuuuge question mark about. Not sure it’s accurate.
Read them all here, and let’s hear your ones please?
But wait there’s more.
Check out the flipside in a list of things we don’t love:
Tabloid TV rivalry
The shabby treatment of HD
The re-enactment of Molly’s fall on Sunday Night
Immunity challenges on MasterChef
