In which Jane, tired from raising twins and moving house, and Duncan, tired from being alive, discuss the vitally important new MediaWorks reality show The Block. Alex was Absent Without Official Leave, and much missed as the undynamic duo dutifully trawled through the mostly mystifying first week of block action, desperately seeking meaning. What happened to Fans vs Faves? Where’s Bunnings go to? Who are these people?
We’ll be better next week, once we know what the hell is going on with the show, and Alex returns to save us from each other. Enjoy!
