    Well...equally mached I'd say, father ted n shorty. They both have their merits. They show shorty here, but only on episodes from 2012 yet.

    I've never heard of either of them, I tend to hear an Aussie accent and switch channels, not very patriotic of me I know. Offspring season 1 is pretty good, but from season 2 onwards it's a slippery slope to formulaic. The Underbelly series are good, they have different actors from every other high rating Australian tv show

    We get a show here from Oz, called "The Ms. Fishers' Mysteries." It's set in the '20s and Ms. Fisher is a liberated lady detective. They're entertaining in the way a paperback detective novel is, but not great drama or anything. Oh and Ms. Fisher has some really lovely clothes.

    Wow...u don't like Australian accents? We love them in our house and frequently 'speak Australian' about the place to great hilarity and appreciation. Alf Steward is a particular favourite. You would probably roll ur eyes at the whole carry on as we do about people 'speaking Irish'. I've seen offspring and undebelly. If ur hear of folks talking about anything that's good though, it would b awesome if u reported back:-D

    You're not the only one for the accents, but then I also do kiwi in the style of Flight of the Concords :)

    It's not so much the accent, it's the terrible acting, the accent just gives me time to change the channel :) Alf Stewart is wonderful for all of the phrases he's given the rest of the world
    And we do 'speak irish', usually after the comedy festivals have been on but I end up laughing too hard at the jokes to nail the accent
