What happened to 'nice' TV shows?
Sometimes, I just like to be a blob in front of the tele, I just want to put the brain in neutral and be entertained.
My go-to in recent years was Masterchef and The Block. Masterchef has become, quite frankly, ridiculous. You need to do three years at a cooking school just to get a foot in the door. You have to know how to temper chocolate and use a sous vide.
And then there's The Block. It used to be about renovating and building and styling. I was interested to see what's 'in' as I have no skills whatsoever in that field. This season, it's about creating conflict and discontent. I hate it. Surely the producers don't need to do that to get good ratings?
Thank God for The Crown. What is everyone watching? Suggestions please.
