Under the belly or over the top?

The third series of 'Underbelly', the top rating television series about crime in Sydney (and previously Melbourne), is starting to look a bit like the Emperor's new clothes to me.

Like the two earlier series, this latest instalment misses no opportunity to display women's breasts regardless of whether such images have any relevance to the scene in which they appear. The same cynical strategy has been employed throughout the Underbelly series in what I assume is a ratings garnering tactic.

In this latest series the storyline is stretched pretty thin with some episodes containing very little or no story development at all.

  1. Finally got around to watching the two episodes from last Sunday. I agree, too much gratuitous female nudity but not enough gratuitous male nudity.
