I don’t believe that the Czechs are in love with talent shows but the TV networks seem to be. To be honest, one network – NOVA – started the process so far as I recall a few years ago running Czechoslovak Superstar or whatever and honestly it was good. The level of talent blew the British version away in my opinion and the winners were very very strong. But, apparently you can have too much of a good thing and in the last two to three years we have been treated to two channels trying to outdo each other with variations on the theme – Czechoslovakia has Talent and other such shows running every Sunday night on the two major channels.
Now a country with less than 20 million people (actually two countries – Czech and Slovak Republics) only has so much talent…. the net result seems to be twofold;
1. The talent level has gone down….. so far down as to be a joke and,
2. We are now treated to foreign talent entering these shows and making progress….
