What’s happened to our Virginia?

By nanzan - 15 October 2009 15

What on Earth is going on at ABC TV Canberra? All this week the look of the ABC Canberra News has been dreadful. Virginia looks like a corpse warmed up!! Something is up with the lighting and the whole look of the studio…and Mark Carmody has gone missing again…or is it just his studio that has gone AWOL?

Does anyone have the inside running?

What’s Your opinion?

I think Virginia has been poisoning Mark’s tea because every time she is on, he isn’t. I think she is sick of those awkward moments where she has to try and respond to Mark’s comments after the weather. She never knows how to respond.

The awkward moments are Virginia’s fault. She should just say “thanks Mark” – she mistakenly thinks that his jibes and jests are aimed at her. They are aimed at the audience, Virginia! You’re just the foil!

Virginia presented tonight. I didn’t see the weather though.

I miss the Mark and Virginia show. I loved seeing them fight, and Virginia getting jabs on Mark.

#10 I think she was replaced with a plastic replica several years ago – perhaps the studio lights are fading her??

Mark is still on the radio (at least he was on Tuesday).

They may have replaced her with a new improved automated model.

I too enjoy Virginia’s often incredulous expressions when Mark throws back to her at the end of the weather.

More to the point. What has happened to Mark. Maybe Virginia has “de-flowered” him! LMAO

LOL!

In reference to Mark and Virginia appearing exclusively: I am led to believe that they are characters played by the same person: John Hargreaves.

Disclaimer: may not actually be true.

Maybe Mark IS Virginia. I mean, have you ever seen them in the same room together?

Funny – I was thinking that Virginia was looking really well at the moment!

Apparently Mark Carmody is on long term leave, he suffered a severe reaction to some pollen and is now in a plastic bubble. He has been advised never to wear foliage in his lapel again, walk in a forest, frolic in a field or stop and smell the roses.

I agree. What has happened to our beloved Mark? Is he unwell again? Is this rain and cold weather making him depressed? My partner and I look forward to Mark turning to Virginia …. “and Virginia, tonight I’m wearing…. ” It’s the highlight of the news.

I agree that V is looking like she’s set further back from the camera. Is someone altering the Feng Shui on the ABC set maybe?
