The only essential viewing of the week
21 July 1999 | by Nick OSee all my reviews

'The Panel' is, in my opinion, by far the best show on Australian television. Its ability to consistently attract interesting guests and hilarious and intelligent panel members make it a funny and informative experience. It deals with everything from politics to sport and even sometimes wrestling (Santo's favourite), and presents them in a fresh, exciting way. This show once again proves that Working Dog are the most creative team in Australian Television/Film.
