Pro: There's singing and dancing
Musicals are so hot right now. Just ask Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Everyone at the ready now ... JAZZ HANDS!
Con: Jesse Mulligan's been there, done that
It wasn't that long ago he was on
trading awkward banter with his indifferent co-hosts. Let's hope he's given a little more to do this time around.
Pro: Josh Thomson is awesome
The more airtime this man gets the better.
should give him entire segments where he just rambles for a bit, uninterrupted.
Con: This looks like a Lotto ad
TV3's one-minute promo is like candy for the eyeballs. Too much candy is bad for you, and no one wants to watch a half-hour Lotto ad every day at 7pm. They'll never get to sleep. Stay off the coffees and tone it the hells down, you guys.
Josh Thomson is amazingly agile. Can he please be asked to do live backflips in The Project's first episode, to prove these are real? DO IT.
Con: This song sucks
All together now: "It's a conversation from the day's events ... It's a punchy summary of all the headlines ... it's a show in the know ... about how things go ..." Nope. Nup. Stop it. No one needs a TV version of Buzzfeed.
Pro: Kanoa Lloyd looks great in yellow
That's a hard colour for anyone to pull off.
Con: Dubstep breakdown
Don't use an electronic interlude to pretend you're down wif da youf. Dubstep is so 2012. No one listens to Skrillex anymore.
• The Project begins screening at 7pm on TV3 from February 20.
