If you’re like me and spend the majority of your television watching time tuned into the ABC (or ABC2 in the case of Please Like Me – it’s a travesty it’s been relegated to ABC2!) you would have seen lots of promos recently for The Code.
ABC programming used to be a bit hit and miss, but over the last few years I’ve become addicted and after my last hour on iView (the internet home of all ABC programming) I can report that The Code is great and looks like it will bear out an interesting story – with appears to be quite timely with our upcoming changes laws regarding press freedom. First things first though: how come nobody told me that Lucy Lawless is in it?
I’m a pretty big fan of Lucy, though not a member of her fan club, since her guest role on Battlestar Galactica as D’anna Biers. She brings a gravity and realness to characters that resonates with me.
I also found out this week that she has joined the cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though with there not being a S.H.I.E.L.D. right now (spoilers!) I’m not sure why it’s still called that. Lucy joining the cast can only mean things are looking up for the show, and it’s a good thing too because it wasn’t great to begin with so…
Lucy Lawless derail over.
If you’re after a good chuckle I also watched Shaun Micallef’s MAD AS HELL season 4 return last night (also on iView) and had to stifle my laughter since Oui was sleeping next to me.
We should enjoy the ABC programs we’ve got right now because when the cuts to the ABC come, as they inevitably will if Tony Abbot and friends have anything to do with it (and they have everything to do with it), we can kiss it all goodbye.
