Carl Williams dead — Underbelly back in the headliness

Carl Williams dead -- Underbelly back in the headliness
Well, this seems oddly appropriate, and well-timed if you’re Channel Nine, that’s for sure. Not so much if you’re Carl Williams… Carl Williams murdered in prison Notorious underworld identity Carl Williams is dead after an attack by two inmates, one wielding part of an exercise bike, in Barwon Prison’s maximum-security Acacia unit… So this might ...

No Moran’s Left Now… more Underbelly news

As many will have no doubt read, Des “Tuppence” Moran was murdered yesterday, in broad daylight, in the middle of the day, in a crowded cafe in Melbourne. He follows to the grave his brother Lewis, his nephews Jason and Mark, and many, many of their colleagues and friends. This is likely freaking police out ...

Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities… what a disappointment 1

Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities... what a disappointment
After my much hit “Underbelly character guide”, I kept thinking I needed to write something about the new Underbelly series, and I kept thinking that I really needed to write something about the series. But since it finished last night, I’ve realised the reason I really wasn’t compelled to write much. It just wasn’t that ...

New Underbelly series casting reports

In a return to my favourite “audience drawing” topic, the Nine Network is moving ahead with a new Underbelly series, to be shot imminently and aired early next year.

First week ends and more Wii time

Ha ha ha … of course we’re getting home and playing Wii again. Sallie borrowed this Monkey Island casual game set thing from Video Ezy, and it drive us kind of nuts after a while. Should think about some real new games, likely Simpsons game first. Work’s pretty good for a first week … learning ...

Pretty good start at the new job … some money problems unrelated to new stuff causing problems … but the days are long, the weather is bad, and the commuting is almost as bad as I could imagine already. So on to the important stuff … Underbelly of course. Gatto chases Opes Prime debts Former ...

Tonight on Underbelly

Tonight on Underbelly
Think I’ll do this regularly now, though ideally, before the episode airs 🙂 Tonight’s Underbelly is a bit of a side story, focusing on loan sharks and money in the gangsters world. It shows just how some of these characters make a living, and the extremes they’re willing to go to. It also has some ...

Underbelly: Now Channel Nine could be in a bit of trouble 1

I’ve already blogged before about Nine’s legal troubles with screening Underbelly in Victoria, and the ridiculousness of a suppression order on one state in the Internet age. We all knew that copies would be on BitTorrent as soon as they were aired in other states (in numbers I’ve never seen before for an Aussie show, ...
