Preview of Mad As Hell, 22nd June 2012
I was lucky enough to see another taping of Mad As Hell, and have a few previews to whet your appetite!
Poor Shaun fluffed his opening monologue most of the way through 3 times, and Tosh had some tongue twisting lines which forced Shaun to say “gusset” more times than I can remember!
There was a very clever debate on gay marriage (the cast were all excellent), a look at how the media can ‘hound’ their stories and a look at Gina Rinehart through the lens of pop culture.
Shaun held another real interview with the star of Queen Leer, Robyn Nevin, which was so post-modern, I couldn’t tell if it was going to be shown as is or to be re-recorded later.
I loved a segment they shot, which may have just been in-case of topical material changing later in the week, called Hey No Nanny, all about whether Shaun felt particular elements in our society were making us too much of a “nanny state” – the graphic alone is worth seeing.
I thought it was the best show yet.
Oh, and we found out at least one source for the names of the reporters – Carrington Mews is apparently an area in Adelaide!
Thank you Verity.
