The Hollowmen on ABC by Working Dog

This is my favourite TV show at the moment. It's a bit like a modern day 'Yes Minister' but sharper and there's no Minister and no laugh track. It targets spin makers the way Frontline targeted tabloid TV journalists but it's so much better than Frontline was (at least from what I remember). The writing and acting is outstanding. This show is an oasis in the bleak landscape of Australian comedy TV and the best thing since Summer Heights High. Linkage:
