Blog comments Your Say

  • You gotta love people like Mike that pick things to pieces. No show is perfect, but to sit there and pick out the faults, some people obviously have very boring lives.

  • Regarding the drama series "Howzat" and pointing out any little errors on the show. Well I noticed when the the car pulled out of the Sussex cricket ground he had to pay the groundsman ten quid. The note he handed over was a current tenner.I also noticed the car rego was alien to the UK. Three numbers and 4 letters was not available even if you were to have personalised plates.And as someone already mentioned there was no such thing as a wireless remote for your TV back in those days remembering the scene was in a London hotel so not in K.P's Channel 9 HQ.

  • Watched the show last night- fantastic! Even if you are not a cricket lover this is a great show. I loved watching these matches with my family as a child in the 70's and it really made cricket interesting and very exciting. It brought back a lot of memories for me and can't wait for the last part this Sunday. Love the moustaches and the whole era and it is so nice to see an Aussie show so well made and informative as well.
