Sweet, sweet sarcasm

I love this review of Sea Patrol in the Sydney Morning Herald “The Guide” this week. Giving the episode a big thumbs down, it says:

This is one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. Who would have thought a straight-faced spoof on the high seas drama — a sort of Secret Seven Sail the Ocean Blue — could be quite this funny? I especially love the way Lisa McCune had her smiling muscles removed to bring faux-gravitas to her role.

Dialogue from the Ark, needless background music and all the tension of Anna Nicole Smith’s knicker elastic. This will run and run.

Thank you, Keith Austin. I’ve never watched the show — and now I feel even less urge.
