Turnabout is the best thing Rob Curling has ever done. Better than presenting sports news on Sky News, better than motivationally speaking as a motivational speaker, better than anything else I find out about him in this Google search I just did.

"Nobody tells me what to do, no not me..."
Ah Pugwall, Australia's own rebel without a plot. Mark and Martyn revisit the summer holiday time slot filler about a 13 year old boy and his boring family and friends. In the summer - when they go to Japan for some reason. There's racism and disappointment - this is still the most Australian TV show ever made.

"Thesp... build me a borg!" shouted Craig Charles, as he awaited the arrival of a blocky virtual reality avatar. But it never arrived. Was there something wrong with Thesp? Were the borgs broken? Or was he just in the B&Q car park again, being all confused?

Mentioned briefly during our David comma The Gnome episode, Trans World Sport was the program you had to sit through on a weekend morning before kids' tv started. Not good kids' tv though.
At least you would learn about sports from around the world. Not good sports though. We were just too lazy to go outside and play. Or even change the channel.
