    I still have to be convinced about the worth of getting up early on Sunday to watch Plunkett and Garner, however, I have to say that The Nation is infinitely better than Q&A with its stale old format, an even staler Holmes, the same old rent-a-red panel and one token rightwinger. F**k, Q&A is so bloody predictable & Holmes according to Holmes is all getting a bit tiresome.

    Maybe its time for TV3 to go head to head with Q&A, after all there are no advertisers to appease.
