Israel Yearns to be Boring
By Micah Halpern

Saturday March 27, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Eretz Nehederet is the most successful political satire show in Israel. The television show is a smash - hit enormously funny and enormously popular. The show pokes fun at Israel, at Israeli leaders and at life in Israel. Nothing is off limits.

Eretz Nehederet, like all sature, is social and political commentary.
The name, Eretz Nehederet, means a “Wonderful Country”.

The star of Eretz Nehederet is Eyal Kitsis. He is quoted as saying that he wishes there wee less fodder for his show to feed on. He yearns for a more boring and stable government. Of course, he acknowledges, that would hurt the show. But it would be good for the country. The situation, as it now exists, makes for very good satirical material.

Katsis said "I would like us to finally have a stable government and make a boring program.”

Most Israelis would agree. But after a few episodes, they would certainly find their favorite program boring.
