    # free-to-air # update: They've started Friends from the beginning, again, without even a short Seinfeld break. I don't know if they got to the end or just thought people prefer the early, less unfunny ones.

    Wow. Affable # nerd David Rees is the same David Rees that produced the profanity-rich webcomic 'Get Your War On' during the dark days of the Coalition of the Willing War On Random Foreign Pre-Corpses. Glad those days are over.

    The Bunyip Tories are broadcasting the first of their election campaign # ads. Evidently the PM's motorcade made it across the barren moonscape of # all the way to the G-G. Phew! I was on the edge of my seat. # #

    All of # seems to be stupid people talking direct to camera. In my day we had these things called "shows". You can still get them on #, but you didn't hear that from me.

    Oh, right. I get it now. Reality # is time spent with people you don't like, while they perform unpleasant, unproductive, totally meaningless tasks. It's a substitute for employment.
