The Greatest Show on Earth

He may argue that In the Night Garden is the best show running on TV at the moment, but if you ask me that Night Garden thing is just too psychedelic; it's babies on drugs.
No, Dylan favorite show has to be SBS' Rockwiz. If only because it's our favorite show, too.
Not a night goes by without Dylan asking to watch some Rockwiz before going to bed. Try to imagine it as he cries for "rockwiz rockwiz" in his high pitched voice; cuteness doesn't come any better. His favorite bits feature the house band doing its thing, and his creme de la creme is the "identify the famous guitar riff" segement.
I fully concur: Rockwiz is the best thing on Australian TV at the moment (and non Australians can also enjoy it on the web). A quiz show with no prize to be won, it features two teams competing on rock trivia questions; each of the team includes an artist that sings a song of theirs, and at the end of the program both artists do a duet. And lest we forget: it's all filmed in an authentic bar at Melbourne's St Kilda beach.
But Dylan is abdolutely right: the star of the show is the terrific band. They do the Rock in Rockwiz.
Don't let the fact it's on SBS deter you: Rockwiz is addictively great!
