Myles Barlow is back!

From the ABC2 tv guide

The Critic. By giving us impressions of their experiences, critics can prepare us for certain life encounters before we commit to them ourselves. They help us navigate a seemingly endless maze of food, wine, literature, music, film, art, travel – the list is vast. But not entirely comprehensive. Until now…

Myles Barlow understands the impact of critical review at a depth seldom if ever before found. But surely, we face far more important issues than what movie to see or what book to buy, in the roller coaster of life!

Join Myles for a second series of the AFI Award-winning comedy Review with Myles Barlow, as he ponders the effects of any human experience his audience desires – and gives it a rating out of five stars. At last, a guide by which to truly experience life!

Myles begins the second series reviewing:

Wanderlust – the freedom and cultural experiences of travelling abroad. But after meeting fellow Aussie traveller Scott, Myles’s quest for enrichment goes anything but to plan.

Addiction – After listening to the plight of a young mother still breastfeeding her two-year-old, Myles dives head first into a life of addiction. His addictions quickly multiply until his life is an unforgiving monster, with an appetite Myles cannot control or satisfy.

Cult – The letter of the week asks Myles the worth of setting up a club. To answer this Myles recruits less fortunate souls to join his cult ‘The Barlowians’. Over time, Myles becomes consumed by his own power, with tragic results.

For those without digital I expect that you’ll be able to watch on iview.

Here is a review from the first series, Myles reviews having a dickhead for a mate:
