AN INCONVENIENT DOCUMENTARY

When a documentary crew visit the set of the show Malice Aforethought within this show Malice Aforethought, someone ends up with a LITTLE MORE than they bargained for… is it our heroes, being twisted by a media savvy diva, jealous of their roaring success? Or is it their arch frenemy Frank, who must begrudgingly pay lipservice to their fledgling show in his end-of-year TV club showcase? Is Harriet friend, foe, or downright hoe? Will Andrew ever fulfil his grandfather’s dying wish!? Find out on this next exciting instalment of MA!

P.S. I HATE YOU

“Even the loftiest and well guarded of hearts shan’t oft be able to esc’pe the Cupid’s arrow at Van Diemens Uni.”
Frank, One Dimensional Malice Aforethought Character.
An unwelcome crush befalls a hero. But is an unrequited crush the most crushing, or is it that ‘tis better to have crushed and been crushed, then never to have crushed at cr-all? Meanwhile, Sara asks (begs) the show’s creators to give her more depth. Hmpphhhh!

BAD NIGHT & BAD LUCK

What could be nicer than a quiet Friday night in the company of good friends? Being young, dumb and full-of-party-invites? Maybe. How about some funner friends? Our heroes grapple with this very predicament in a touching “only-as-young-as-you-feel!” romp. Pull up an office chair and enjoy the purrrrfect night in. Or is it? Meow.

ONE FLEW OVER THE GALAHS’ NEST

Oi codger, pull up a log and have a listen. They say this finale episode is TRUE.

Once a jolly swagman, camper than a disco-thon,
Under the shade of education tertiary,
And he sang as he watched,
And waited till his claim was soiled,
You’ll come ex-a-cute this last will with me.

Our heroes are thrust into life of early European Australians, proving their ability to live without modern convenience, provide video proof that Jack deserves his great-Uncle’s land, and stop the BLOODY BANKS from getting their grubby paws all over it.
