This should probably go in the rants section, but...
Does anyone else watch 4x4TV on Channel 31? Where are the 4x4s? The only real four wheel drives (by real i mean something that could be driven to work, even if it was on 38" muddies) was in the adds! I saw mud racing, rockcrawling, that weird 'high speed rally on flat dirt roads" thing, reports on batteries and a 10 minute report on the most unroadworthy 4x4 ever gone for a roadworthy (except mine ).
Not a single 4x4 anywhere. Now, i'm not blind to the production issues behind a low budget TV show. They can't show footage of Winch Challenges every week. But why can't "Simon" get a few mates together, head bush, and film a few of them battling some tracks???
If you ask me, they've got a slight taste of the "ratings high-life" and are trying to build a bigger audience. Every 2nd story is from NZ. OK, it get it, they're trying to expand into NZ!
It used to be a "never miss a week" kind of show... even with all the adds and the adds-in-the-show and the adds-in-the-reports .
Just thought i'd see if anyone else feels the same...
