Am I the only one who has noticed that the ABC’s summer (and other times, too) television programming is dominated by two incredibly irritating Pommy prats, Kevin McCloud and Stephen Fry? I cannot bear either of them and yet, we have program upon program compered by these two self-centred half-wits.
Take Kevin McCloud (we call him Harry Highpants, check out the early series) – what a green-obsessed, pretentious tosser. The other night we caught a bit of a program where he was in effect berating the not-very-well-off couple for ordering a kit home. What – not a kit home? What they really should have done, according to Kevin, is commission an architect to design some completely impractical and expensive abode made out of driftwood and hemp.
And as for Stephen Fry, who evidently thinks Australians should be incarcerated because of our annoying accents (the upward inflexion at the end of sentences does not go down well with this Oxbridge educated bore), is on program after program, including the ridiculous and dreary QI. This program really needs to be remained – NI.
To be frank, I would rather have repeats of repeats of some of the entertaining drama and comedy produced locally for the ABC – The Library, The Moodys, The Slap, The Time of our Lives, Upper Middle Bogan, etc. Anything but more Kevin and Stephen.
