The intelligence of this show is amazing. I just see those stupid wife-swap shows or straights being gay or even freaking Big Brother and I lose more faith in humanity. LIVING WITH THE ENEMY takes the age old beaten to death reality program method and puts it to intelligent use. It discusses or debates, in a live-in situation, the cultural differences of Australians.

It is honest and the good thing is it is unbiased, you can hear both sides of the story and make up your own mind. It is bloody clever in that aspect, I am a very opinionated individual and I was left questioning my thoughts at some of the varying beliefs.

At first I thought it was going to be very formulaic with either ends of the opinion living together, seeing each other’s views, opening up to them, hugging their enemy and becoming open minded people. But the joy of it is that happens sometimes and at other times it makes people more stuck into their beliefs, as narrow as they may be.

Every episode of this show is something that had me glued to the screen and this is never a show I would hunt down – I saw it primarily because of my friend Dora, and it changed me. It is a great discussion based show to watch with the partner or family, it will make you angry, sad, mad and at times happy. It will also make you yell, cuss idiots and at other times laugh.

If you don’t win a copy – track it down – this show is well worth a watch, clear out the family’s shit viewing of Big Brother crap and get into something smart.
