The Second Republic

Very studenty feel from this thing... What was wrong with the news at one on a Saturday... 1pm is just not the right time for a comedy show..

I did enjoy this gag:

"Which is older, Twink or Newgrange?"

Green Tea was decent humour most of the time but this was dreadful. What a waste.

That bad!!! By my calculation that makes it just above Funny Friday level...

Isn't it time RTE got the message. You cannot, have not or ever will produce decent comedy, either on TV or radio. Granted the occasional gem (Scrap Saturday - can't think of anything else, maybe Paths to Freedom on TV) get past the sentry.


But otherwise......ah! just give up.

We can always laugh at Duffy's insincerity and cry at Marzie's pay-packet.

Today was every bit as bad as last week. Unfunny and strained. Where does RTE get funds to commission such trash?

I had the misfortune of hearing this 'show' today - utter garbage - it makes 'green tea' sound scrap saturday esque.

Who commissioned this junk ? - and what affect are these shows having on Saturday afternoon ratings ?

Oh dear. A succession of lazy arsed observational quips. I don;t mind that RTE is actually trying new stuff only that they once again have not bothered to work the concepts up to a broadcastable level.

So on the ( off ) button unfortunately. Given that we have made such a mess of the first republic could nothing better be tried?
