  • For the first show of the series, it was great!

    For the first show of the series, it was great! Pat Rafter was shown as the great down to earth Aussie he is. Ella Hooper was also great (altough I think she was a bit freaked out to be talking to a cartoon character). Some of the camera angles could do with a tweak, the wide shot dosn't look quite right, the guest seems to be looking towards the side of Tench instead of right at him.

    David Tench was funnier than I expected and also quite quick with his one liners, I especially liked the one "My favorite tennis player is Leyton Hewitt. You love it when he wins because he is Australian, and you love it when he losses because he is a knob."moreless
