Hmmmmm Wanted Down Under

    Is it just me???

    After watching this series I think the BBC have decided on what they believe is a 5 point winning formula.:nah:

     

    1. Pick a family that doesn't really want to go.

    2. Show them houses well above their budget.

    3. Trial them in a job that isn't what the do in UK or is a step down on the pay/staus front.

    4. Show them a video of their families doing the emotional blackmail thing.

    5. Decide not to go as its not right for them at the moment and they can't leave their family.:skeptical:

     

    Don't think I'll bother watching the rest of the series. They don't look like they are covering Adelaide anyway.

    Completely agree. Maybe it would be better if they used people like us who have already applied for their Visas and therefore really want to go and will help them get a heads up on everything when they finally arrive.

    Quite right too - which is why I tried to get to be in this series, if only they had replied to me :arghh: It would have been really useful - and saved us a few quid.

    I dont really like this series at all - I think Im only watching it as its the only way to catch a bit of sunshine at the mo!!

    :goofy:Have to agree with you pete , looks like they are trying to put people off this series, :huh:Its the house part that does my head in, they have so much to spend so lets just rub it in as to what they could have if they had saved up a bit more:arghh:, oh well it makes more room for all of us when we get there.

    Totally agree with you all,

     

    I'm not enjoying the series this time round, can't hear it anyway cos my OH keeps shouting at the tv demanding to know why they are on it if they are so clearly dead against the idea!!!

     

    We had been recording via Sky + and just f/fwd every time the family come on with all the tears, this part of it I feel is really unfair, because if these people haven't made up their mind to go (unlike ourselves), it's definately enough to stop them in their tracks!

    This is the funniest bit. The thing I like is when the parents say "we all really miss you". Like they have only been gone week.:rolleyes: Do they go on holiday with both sets of parents every year?:biglaugh::biglaugh:

    Is it maybe a case that last years programme was so successful that the whole of the UK is now trying to leave for Oz so they are now trying to reverse the trend.

     

    Maybe i am just too cynical.

    i'm dissapointed also, totaly negative series this time round, why?

    best thing i like was getting an inside view of the country us pia's are heading for.

    made me feel stronger because the things the families struggled on i found i was ok with and did not pull on the heart strings tooo much.

    In last years programme all the families were found through migration agents - all had visa applications in progress! Maybe they decided to do it a bit differently this year as I cant remember one programme in the last series where the family didn't decide to go. Unfortunately can't watch this one as am in Adelaide :)

    Ha ha ha!!! The part where they have $300,000 to spend on a house and then they show them one for $450,000. Great stuff! Like a modern day Bullseye...'Have a look at what you could have won!!!'

    watched it this morning and thought what was the point in the family going on this when the hubby had no interest in leaving his family behind and you could see that NO-WAY was he moving to Oz.

    Would be better if they picked familys that were serious about emigrating and stopped showing them houses when they were there out of there price range.

    I think theese familys are just after a free holiday.

    Well of course!! I quite like watching it myself (but don't tell anyone that). I'm guessing there's a few In The Night Garden fans in your house as well??? x

    Oh yes definitely, although Jack and Sophie seem to enjoy it more, I think Niamh isn't really quite sure whats going on!! Oh and Pete seems to know all the names so I think he enjoys it too but don't tell him I told you and everyone else!! :biglaugh:

     

    Off now to watch todays wanted down under!!

    Hi,

    i am glad i watched last years,as this series is awful,i liked the family today,she is a single mum with 2 boys and wants to move to oz so much,but why show her a house £95,000,more then she can afford,the first one was bad enough £30,000 above her budget,she has to pay for childcare and no way could she afford those houses.really pleased she got the job offer and wish her all the best it shows if you are determined enough it can happen for you.next wed episode is a revisited one its one of the families who wanted to move to brisbane,so will look forward to that one.
