It's TV ON HIATUS for radio on the internet. Brett Cropley, Marian Blythe, Nicola Holiday, Steele Saunders and Dave Lawson present Boxcutters to fulfil a very important need: Television deserves respect. At a time when TV is producing better storylines, better drama and better comedy than any other form of entertainment (we're talking about you, Movies) there needs to be an outlet for independent discussion about the medium. Boxcutters is that outlet. Every week Boxcutters brings you news about the world of television, reviews, interviews and opinions (and a lot of love).
Founded by Brett Cropley, Josh Kinal and Ross McQueen, the roster of regular presenters includes John Richards, Nelly Thomas, Courteney Hocking, Dave Lawson, Marian Blythe, Rachel Howe, Steele Saunders and Chris "Angry Old Man" Tuddy. For your delectation we present Boxcutters.

Not enjoying 2.0

I miss the old Boxcutters. There seems too much chit chat about non-tv related issues on the new Boxcutters, and far too much superfluous nonsense. I think that when the hosts review a show, or talk directly about television, the show shines and I really enjoy it. However, the addition of “Marian’s Crush” as a segment is trite, and shows a real dumbing down of the show since Kinal and Richards’ departure. The claim that having a woman make sexual objects of people is somehow a feminist twist on society’s sexualisation of women is a weak and hollow claim. Can Blyth not see that in discussing her ‘crushes’ SHE is the portraying the typical stereotype of the ‘in love’ young woman?

Anyway, that small criticism aside, I’m giving 2.0 the rule of three and sticking with it. I really hope that we get more tv and less anecdotes about non-tv related nonsense.

Brett Cropley is still the best in show!

Boxcutters 2.0

I was a little worried that a large scale change of presenters would affect the feel of the podcast, but most of the things that made me listen in the first place are still there, and the more equal gender ratio adds a bit more balance.
