Hello World!

Ah, the Summer non-ratings period. Here in Australia, it's the time when the networks pull out all the shows they ordered from the U.S., only for them to be cancelled before they made it to air here.

Occasionally, there's also a series that is actually good (and hasn't been cancelled). The West Wing was last year's success - this time round, it looks like Gilmore Girls. That's not to say it even approaches the quality of TWW, but it's unpretentious quirky fare that usually manages to put a smile on my face. Perfect tune-out material.

The other good thing about Summer television is Fraiser - apparently not worthy to be included in the ratings period, but still far better than a lot of the "comedies" shown then, even if it has declined a bit in recent years. Unfortunately, Channel 9 has either run out of new episodes or is saving them for next Summer, so we've been seeing last season's episodes.
