While you're out shopping for gifts this Christmas why not share the love with local Australian productions? It was a great year for Aussie entertainment with flicks like Animal Kingdom, Tomorrow When the War Began and TV productions such as Offspring and Underbelly. Check out our selection of the best DVDs this holiday season — there's something for everyone!
It's been an interesting week for Australian TV with two highly-anticipated series making their premieres. Though Nine's Underbelly: The Golden Mile blew away it's competition on Sunday, Seven won last night's rating war with Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg's $200 million WWII masterpiece, The Pacific—which managed to narrowly beat the return of Nine's nanna-hit Hey Hey It's Saturday. So, with one win each for Nine and Seven, tell us, which premiere did you prefer—Underbelly: The Golden Mile or The Pacific?
Underbelly 3: The Golden Mile is bringing in some hefty ratings, so producers are milking this cash cow for all it’s worth. Plans are in motion to make at least two more instalments. Underbelly 4 is expected to be based on a story about a strike force that investigated violent crimes in Sydney, while Underbelly 5 would focus on Queensland in the 1980s. What do you think about more servings of Underbelly?
Underbelly: The Golden Mile hit our screens on Sunday night and, if the 3 million peeps who tuned in to the premiere is any indication, the third installment in the Aussie-gangster series looks set to be yet another runaway hit for Channel Nine. But many are now asking whether the show glamourises crime and the real, seedy side of Sydney's King's Cross in the 1980s. There's no denying that Sunday's ep, featuring a cheeky and clever John Ibrahim, was a (read: very) favourable depiction of the 'King of the Cross.' But just how accurate was it? Tell us what you think: is the drama in Underbelly 3 jazzed up or just right?
Seems like TV viewers can’t get enough of Underbelly. The third series of the show blew away the competition last night with over three million peeps tuning in for the first hour, making it the most popular show so far in 2010. The Golden Mile has set the bar for ratings, so it looks like the upcoming premieres of The Pacific and the new MasterChef Australia are going to have to rock it. Did you tune in last night? What did you think of the latest installment of Underbelly? Did you rate it or hate it?
