This show satirised mainstream media, from "issues of the day" journalism to the society pages (lampooned in the "celebrity share market index index"). No fish is too big or barrel too small. Presenter Jeremy Wells kept a straight face over seven seasons of (often controversial) episodes, while investigating issues inexplicably missed by other media (eg. the porno made in Taranaki and shot in te reo, the ritalin-fueled reality programme Medswap). EML's seventh season won Best Comedy Programme at the 2008 Qantas Film and Television Awards.
