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.
Presenter Jeremy Wells manages to keep a straight face as he mercilessly satirises all manner of mainstream media and "issues of the day" journalism in long-running satire series, Eating Media Lunch. No fish is too big or barrel too small. In this 2006 'worst of EML' special Wells tests the patience of talkback radio hosts; reveals the horrifying 'truth' behind the demise of celebrity merino Shrek; plus there's sneak previews of the al-Qaeda blooper reels; and Anal Mana, our first indigenous porno flick (you have been warned: not suitable for children).
