Is it worth invading anyway?

Dear Australia Network,

If you’re going to bring Australian TV to the world, could you possibly start bringing some good Australian TV to the world?

Specifically: less of McLeod’s Daughters and Home and Away, and more of The Gruen Transfer (what’s a Gruen Transfer?) and The Hollowmen. Plzkthx.

As evidence, a clip from a recent episode of The Gruen Transfer: can our advertising agencies convince us to invade New Zealand? I dunno about you, fearless readers, but I’m sold.

Update: The Kiwis aren’t happy about being invaded.
