    Why is it Aussie tv is being bombarded with American crap all the time....


    The channels here cant even support Aussie drama....its a joke....


    Tricky Business for example, is a great show and after one series, is being Axed.....


    No fare!!! Get rid of some of the American and overseas reality programs we are bombarded with!!

    I totally agree with your statement. It was a shame about Tricky Business, I liked that show. From what I can see, our networks don't have any patience to give new shows a try, unless, of course they are American 'reality' garbage. Or they produce clones of American 'reality' garbage. Real television, the stuff we grew up with, drama, thriller, comedy, sci-fi, seems to have been forced off our screens by 'reality' crap.

    I totally agree, American dramas have took over. I am currently writing my own and have a load of ideas for new shows, and there is a website that has just came out to let people do it, I was searching and came across it. Go to pitchscript.co.uk and have a go, you don't have to be a serious writer to do it. We have to break the cycle.
