Episode 2

Wed, September 06, 2017
Written by Kate McCartney, Kate McLennan
Directed by Hayden Guppy

After a month on air, the Kates have found their groove and are ploughing ahead with only marginally more understanding of how to conduct a live broadcast. A new addition to the team is news reporter Scarlett Nicdao, who is also an unpaid Year 10 intern. Whatever charisma she lacks is made up tenfold by the radiant weather girl, Bekjut, who has just returned from maternity leave with the figure of a 19-year-old figure skater.

Fashion Krackspert Helen Bidou brings Bali to everyone's doorstep with a piping hot tutorial on sarongs, but the wheels come off the show when a mindfulness segment is interrupted by news that McCartney has been shortlisted for the main role in a US remake of a Scandi-Noir thriller, The Tower. McLennan can't understand why she, the trained thespian, has been overlooked and sets out to prove that she is the real heart, backbone and blonde hair of the duo.

With: Anne Edmonds, Charlotte Nicdao, Adam Briggs, Emily Taylor, Michelle Lim Davidson, John Leary, Danielle Walker

Episode 3

Wed, September 13, 2017
Written by Kate McCartney, Kate McLennan
Directed by Hayden Guppy

It's an extra-special episode of Get Krack!n today because the Kates are being joined by an A-List celebrity co-host! According to Bryce from her record label, the international pop superstar is a huge fan of the show and will definitely be arriving at any moment.

The Kates are way too pumped to care about melting polar ice caps and what lies ahead for the most recent evictee of hit dating show The Boyfriend. The Get Krack!n Kash Kock pays a special visit to give away cash to one lucky viewer — but only if they answer within three rings! — and an adorable Australian animal waits in the wings for a cuddle with the Hollywood starlet. McLennan takes the celebrity endorsement as irrefutable proof that the show is not shit and that people do like it, but McCartney will reserve judgment on this matter until she hears it from the star herself.
