Episode 35 of 76 episodes
The dreaded First Four Shows of the Year curse finally comes home to roost in the fourth show and the result is truly an episode which is all over the shop. The alternative editorial segment called Nongshells returns to no particular distinction and none of the other segments can apparently decide what they are. Stew repeatedly describes the ABC’s Tony Jones as the thinking woman’s fluff without quite knowing whether that’s what he means or whether it means anything, and otherwise has many problems with words. Leapster is adamant that there are too many ads on Foxtel and that most of them are wasting his time trying to get him to watch American Idol, and is otherwise comprehensively under-prepared and disgruntled. Chaos ensues.
