Actually, that whole Ace Rimmer scene manages to hit a dozen or so tropes throughout.
1. Evil Nazi is also fat.
2. Bad guy can't shoot straight.
3. Bad guy leaves hero facing certain death - but crucially he leaves before hero is actually dead.
3. Hero complains about some minor irritant while...
Lance Armstrong raised bugger-all to help cancer sufferers. Livestrong raised money to 'Raise awareness of cancer' - like we didn't know that was a thing.
One of the ways they found to 'Raise awareness' was to rent a private jet for Armstrong and associates to get to functions and events etc...
John Steffensen? 3-time olympian.
Has priors with other 'celebrity' shows.
Media savvy. Good performer.
Guaranteed to make a few inflammatory remarks when required.
Loves playing the race card.
Main knock against is that he may be working with the Nitro Aths series running in Feb.
First time I've watched it in a while. Greatly improved from early days - much faster, less predictable.
Sam Pang remains the funniest guy on Australia television.
Kitty F has excellent timing - hre response when told 'Your answer has to be clean' was perfectly understated.
Oh - and Chloe...
Spicks and Specks worked because they asked music stars and comedians on, asked serious questions and got them to riff off that. Everyone got a couple of minutes to do their story, and the comedians just interjected as appropriate. The poor parts of the show were whenever they did a...
Interesting with Sabine Schmitz - when she first appeared on Top Gear about 12 years ago, she created quite a stir because she was a)Fast b)funny and c) A Woman!
She's had a good career in TV in Germany since, but I suspect from the above photo she's no longer in exactly racing trim.
Hopefully, he didn't sober up first.
In his honour, we should all have.........have a......... what?
Pietersen makes sense. The Poms love this celeb rubbish (their version has been going for years) plus cricketers have a pretty good record in these type of things - Tuffers won one (gave his profile a huge boost), Ramprakash won the dancing thing.
Petersen won't get picked for England again...
Should be fun. I hope it retains the same tone as the original (over-the-top nationalism, cartoonish good- and bad guys, ludicrous technological Deux ex Machinas).
Needs a few more hot chicks, though.
I am fairly relieved that in Australia we haven't fallen quite as far as the Poms, where they could put 'Celebrity' in front of any crap TV show - basket-weaving, hair-dressing, nose-picking - and people will watch it. About the only Celeb success we have had was the Dancing With The Stars, and...
