I cannot speak highly enough of the new Channel Seven show at 9.30 on Thursday nights, Age of Love.
This reality show features Mark Philippoussis dating a range of 40+ women and another group 0f 20-something twits.
And it is an absolute train wreck of a show. It is cliched, and the dialogue is awkward and staged. The Poo looks like a deer in the headlights, blinded by the light glinting off smooth, botox-filled brows. And I love it.
The show makes more compelling viewing for Australians, because we know a few things about the Poo that most Yanks don’t:
- He is as dumb as a box of hammers.
- He is a mentally suspect perpetual underperformer on the tennis court.
- He lurves young chicks – the younger the better.
Actually, he is not as unlikeable as I thought he would be – his (failed) efforts to contain his surprise when he finds out the ages of his dates-to-be are absolutely classic.
On the other hand though, he is every bit as stupid as I thought he would be.
All the girls – young and old – are vacuous maneaters. And all have chipped in to keep the plastic surgeons on the west coast of the USA in business. Here is a clip to get you up to speed. You’ve only missed one episode, so get on board this Thursday.
