Packed to the Rafters

I just finished watching the first episode of Packed to the Rafters.

I can picture myself growing to love the show. 

The ending of the first episode worked my tear ducts a bit.  That to me is usually a good sign...in terms of television quality. 

Laughing out loud is a good omen too. I can't remember if I ever laughed out loud while watching the episode.

I was at least mildly amused. That might be enough.  For now.

Empathy for characters is important.

I had empathy, especially for the dad trying to hide his erect penis. 

Strange that I should have penis-empathy.

Or maybe it's just empathy for wanting to hide embarrassing bodily functions.  Like having to fart when someone else is in the room.  Can you hold it in?  Maybe.  Maybe not.   Can you leave the room and fart there? Yes. Perhaps.  But what if the walking movement causes a premature explosion?  

Now I'm also thinking of Hugh Jackman wetting his pants while on stage.

I love that story.

"Penis-empathy".
ROFLMAO again.

As usual, a post full of new information about Australia or an Australian.
Poor Hugh.

Fruitcake,

I gotta say....I think my invention of the term "penis-empathy" might be my greatest contribution to this planet.

Or maybe someone's already come up with it.

Yeah. Probably.

Poor Hugh, indeed. But it's a very inspirational story.

Oh I'm surprised you haven't watched 'Rafter's' before.. I really liked the first few seasons but I've gone off it a bit lately as too many of the original cast have left. I don't think it's laugh out loud hilarious, but very relatable, well as an Aussie anyway, I'd be interested to hear what you think of it after you watch a bit more!

Kate Sparkles,

I think it's annoying when shows lose their original cast.

That happened with McLeod's Daughters.

I hope it doesn't happen with Offspring.

It's a shame it happened with Packed to the Rafters.
