At least Steve Britten didn't sign off with "the home of comedy."

Can somebody rip that video somehow and upload it to a non-Youtube source? I'm in China at the moment and the Party apparently don't want me to be up to date with everything Joy of Sets.

As much as I love Get This, I think that's a good thing. Too many in jokes and the wonderful Channel 9 audience will run away screaming. And we kinda need them to watch because if they don't 9 will rip it off air.

I agree - even as a huge Get This fan I sometimes have to remind myself that it's over and Tony and Ed have moved on. What we see now are valentines to Get This with the Warwick Capper material in The Joy of Sets, and I'm sure we'll see more.

The Joy of Sets will still have a fairly niche audience I think, I just hope it's enough to keep it on the air.

At least they seem to be putting a significant number in the can prior to screening any, so at worst it will become a moving target in timeslot/channel (Go/Gem) rather than completely disappearing.

I know that sounds pessimistic, but that's the reality at Channel 9 - they can't leave anything well the fcuk alone.

I'm going to be an extra tomorrow in Sydney for The Block sketch! I might finally get to meet Tony! Ontos I am so hopeless with names; I forget your real one (PM me if you like). Who else will be there??

I have to say I have NO idea about The Block - have never watched it; will have to educate myself tonight so I know like I've got a clue what's going on!
I'm a thinker.... I thinka!
