"REALITY TV" - (and "TV" in general...)

Only 1 month into 2019 and here we go again - the amazing  number of Reality TV shows that are on most nights of the week .......... (some good - some bad) .....

We have:-  (for those who may be interested...)

MKR - (7)

been on for years - still rating very highly ....(Manu and "Paleo Pete") ...the judges .....

Married at First Sight - (9)

ratings were highest ever for a "reality show" in  2017/18 .(just beat "Ninja Warrior"!)... 

Back into the  "Celebrity Jungle" again for Chn. 10 - ugh ..(the stuff they eat and do is sickening!)

Ninja Warrior returning to Chn. 9 .....

Bachelor - Chn. 10 - returning later in year .....

... .... for anyone who may be interested.....??   Tonight (Sat.) on Foxtel "Smooth/Arts" Channel .....(133?)

Starting at 6.30 pm til 11.00pm   (4 1/2 hours)

'ELVIS' .......LIFE STORY ....  (hits/misses - movie clips (both childhood and ones he "starred" in)  - his battle with weight/drugs/sickness and eventual death .....)

Had a look at Foxtel Menu - you can actually "pick n choose" which bits of his life story you may be interested in - as they have "sectioned" it over the 4 1/2 hour period!

pick and choose, mm? Sounds like a great name for a Chinese Buffet?

Don't have Foxtell

me either PLAN B,   



Ohhh noooooo - PB and Cats ....  No Foxtel?   haha - just kidding ....

......  I had their Full Package for years (everything!)  .....always tonnes of "stuff" to watch/record -  but wasn't doing it justice so "downgraded" and now have the 2 "blocks" of entertainment/doco's that I watch most ....(still got masses of channels) ....only $39 per month - less than $10 per week really......just......    :-) 

I have so much to watch now Foxy on the 2 recorders --  and I am not into movies 

No - I'm not into movies either - very rare that I watch one......I was paying Foxtel for "Movies" and "Kids" and "Sport" - I knew I had to "rejig" package - should have done it ages ago!

OH NO FOXY,    not another BARNABY,    save us from this,  lol,    wonder how his wife and daughters feel,   if they have any sense,   they will forget him,  but hard beloning to a family when these things happen,

Ok - so have set to record - "Celebrity Jungle" tonight - was going to watch it as it happened BUT it is showing 3 1/2 hours ....    7.30pm - 11pm (plus....) will record and cut out all the ads.......

.... don't normally watch it - but have to see who "goes" there ....they get paid $1 mill. each don't they - if they stay the length of the show???????

I will record Celeb--   ( never knew they got that much to stay in )     don't think I would like to eat that stuff for no matter how much.

Don't forget the SBS boat trip tonight also I think 188mins on SBS at 7.30pm as well


Oh cool - would have forgotten that!  I recorded on SBS (last night) "My 2nd. Indian Restaurant"..... not sure if it is new or a repeat?

I saw all the turmoil/problems the girls had with their "First Indian Restaurant" am guessing this is pretty much the same?

With all the drama's they had with the first one - beggars belief they would go thru' all of that again?  Makes for a good "reality show" viewing tho' - maybe they get paid to actually do it or be in it??

Have you watched any episodes of that show PB?

I watched most of the recorded -- Celeb get me out --- it must have gone over time as I missed the very end and I did record it for longer  -- Lambie IMO needs to show a little more empathy and not be so darn loudmouthed and crude-- that footballer bloke is impressive and shows empathy and is not full of himself -- that  "male model"   is a real PITA -- and if he thinks he is so darn handsome -- he is delusional  -- 

Will be interesting as to how they all pan out --

Also taped the boat trip on SBS have watched a little of that



... ok - I have watched just over half of Celeb. - rest I will do at some stage today/night!

I thought Lambie (so far) was a pretty good sport ...I mean .... who on earth would wanna' go dressed like she was and then in a matter of 15 mins. have all that
"paint dust" crap all over your clothes - in your hair etc. etc.  then - have to meet the rest of the "cool crowd" looking like that?  Also that Carlson guy (whatever his name is....wasn't he on Australia's Top Model as a judge? Hmmm....) he was a mess also!

IMO they could have left that for a bit later - but .....I felt sorry for them!  (Silly me - haha)

Same old same old - snakes/scorpions/etc.  never changes!  

I did think that Lambie "picked" the best people/team myself out there....I am barracking for the Red Team!  Will only be "flippin' thru"  the recordings tho' - makes me sick the stuff they have to eat and do ....revolting!

Agree about the male model ........ lol 

On again tonight ......  so I'd better catch up ......   

.... for anyone who may not know - or may be interested........?

Tonight (Tuesday) ............. New series of  MKR ......with "Paleo Pete and Manure "   :-)    Might take a look - kinda' all MKR'd out .......

                                                      *     *     *     *     *

 Celebrity Jungle is the pits!  That moronic helicopter ride?  Seriously?  Always said someone will be killed on that show - one day .......... bizarre ...... either that or chronic food poisoning with the rubbish they are made to eat!   Revolting ........ 

i forgot M,K,R,   was on tonight,   missed it,   but have been recording JUNGLE,    and watching it back,    must admit,  its a pretty motley crew that are there,    apart from LAMBIE,   who i like,    no one of any interest,   the one that was in the opening with LAMBIE,     is an old hack from years back,  who used to get the goss on the hollywood ;stars;    DESTARDI is making himself look a bigger fool than he is,   with all his wimpering about losing his family,    if he hadnt cheated he would still have his wife,  [he didnt cheat with another woman,   ;who would have him'      ]but he cheated on the government he worked for,       as for that one from LOVE ISLAND,   or where ever they dug him from,    thinking he is a pretty fnot my type im afraidhe was leering at every female that arrived,      but what a sook when he went into the ice water,     YES,    they do get paid to go there,     they dont all get the same,     and it depends how long they last,   ,      


..... noooooo - it was my mistake Cats .....what happened was:   I saw "promos." of the upcoming NEW series of MKR ......then a day or so later - I saw an ad. for MKR last night ....... I thought it was the new series starting......

My mistake and I apologise!  You didn't miss anything last night Cats was just going back over the years of MKR ......... shocking! lol 

Yes - Celeb is awful ..........

HAVE dancing with the stars coming up,   next,  

... yeah and Married at First Sight ....... (couple of the "brides" on that appear "bizarre" if the promo's are anything to go by) ...... lol

Tonight - Tuesday 22nd. Jan.  Chn. 7  11.00 PM

"The Illusionists" .......... the World's best magic tricks .................


.... "was" looking forward to "The Illusionists" .... apparently I read today the show was/is amazing and quite expensive to buy tickets to go see (wherever it is currently?)

Note I said "was" - Foxtel you "Failed" yet again to record.....duhhhhhhhh ..IQ box was rebooted and fault!  :(

i forgot the illusionist,     have been catching up with the old mkr in the afternoon,    anyone watch that SUPERVET,  on sbs?   what a remarkable man,     has fixed so many animals that would otherwise have had to be put down,     amazing,    i wonder if he could make me two bionic new knees,   mine are buggered,  lol,
