Some good TV

Ha! The year's most overrated toy has just had it's price cut by $200. I don't have much sympathy for people who rush in to get the latest trendy piece of tech because they think it will make them cool, only to discover they could have payed 1/3 less by waiting two months. Why would you want an iPhone when you can get something cheaper and far better anyway?

But I digress. I'm here to talk about two good TV shows. Two very good Australian comedy shows in fact. No, really. The first one is The Chaser's War on Everything, which I assume you (whoever you are) already know about. If not, go watch every episode and then come back here for further instructions. What provoked this post was the Chaser team's APEC security stunt.

Sydney's been turned into a fucking fortress for this APEC crap (which of course stands for "A Pointless Expensive Crock"), with more fences and rozzes than you can shake a stick at. Then the Chaser lads come along in a phoney motorcade and get withing metres of Dubya's hotel! If Chas hadn't been dressed as Osama bin Laden, they probably could (and would) have gotten in. This is hilarious, and I'm proud to live in a country where a bunch of guys who have the balls to do stuff like this are celebrated as they are. For a society to function there needs to be people who will take the piss out of bullshit like APEC without fear of the powers-that-be sending them to Guantanamo Bay or some shit. Chaser lads, I salute you.

The other show (which is on, conveniently, straight after the Chaser), is Summer Heights High. This show (the follow up to the legendary We Can Be Heroes) is just hilarious. Chris Lilley is a really good actor and the script is awesome. One of my favourite lines was by Ja'mie King, on "exchange" from a snooty private school: "Public schools are so random!" If you are Australian and don't watch this show, you officially fail at life.
