Must watch

Last election, TV3 screened a neat little show called The Pretender, detailing the attempt of right-wing property developer Dennis Plant to win the fictional seat of Wakatipu South. It was a wonderful political satire, beautifully understated, and it was a shame when it finished.

Now its back, poking at the themes of our election and of waka-jumping. Plant's new party even has its own website, though I'm sure I've seen that name before. I wonder how Gordon Copeland feels about the implied poke?
