TV and all that jazz

TV and all that jazz.

Turn the clock back to 1994 and Australian audiences were introduced to a show called Blue Heelers (technically the pilot aired in 1993), a show which could give the British dramas Heartbeat and Midsomer Murders a run for their money in terms of the number of crimes in a rural setting.

When Blue Heelers started it was a low rating show for the Seven Network, so much so there were concerns it would not be renewed for a second season. But Seven pursued with it and then by the time it got to its third season (1996) it was the #1 Australian drama and often the #1 show on Australian television screens.

The reason I bring this up is the show is being re-released this week on DVD, which gives those who were not around a chance to watch the show and those who were to rewatch the show again.

So this raises the question. If you watched a show years ago, would you still have the same perspective of it years later? Or if a person who is in their teens, do they have the same opinion as someone say in their 30s or 70s?

I am about to launch a new section on the site in regards to some TV shows, which depending on popularity may expand to other forms of media. Some will include perspectives of a teenager and those in their 30s and/or 70s, others will be of those in their 30s and 70s, or maybe only involve a member of one of the said age groups.

If there is a show you would like to see reviewed, feel free to suggest one or just comment on what you thought of the shows that are being reviewed!
