Yesterday we wrote that the reactions to the latest SBS6 series from Linda de Mol are not tender. Johan Derksen is in it Today Inside a little more on top. “The series is already a monstrosity. Badly acted and badly written.”
The series FIVE LIVE is about the divorced couple Sara (Linda de Mol) and Roderik (Waldemar Torenstra) who present a fictional talk show together. On Twitter, critics do not mince words: they call the program “crowded” and “bland” among other things. According to viewers, the makers could also have thought a little better about the fact that one of the characters is called Orlando Boldewijn: a seventeen-year-old boy who was murdered four years ago turns out to bear the same name. A spokesperson for Talpa said about this: “The character Orlando is fictional and the name – now it turns out very unfortunate – was chosen by chance.”
Derksen: ‘The Dutch cannot act’
In Today Inside the gentlemen discuss programs on national television, among other things. In the latest episode, the SBS6 series is first laughed at the all-rounder, to which Derksen states that it could be worse. “The worst thing I’ve seen is Linda de Mol’s new TV series. The acting was very bad. overactinglike the Dutch do. Apparently Dutch people can’t act. It didn’t look like anything.”
The analyst has nothing good to say about the program. “This is tasteless and not fun at all. If you write such a thing with self-mockery, then you have to write that the presenter’s husband is cheating with production ladies. Then you have a sense of humor.”
The scene in which a parody of television critic Angela de Jong gets a lamp on her head caused a lot of controversy and Derksen also thinks it is his own. “This was a personal settlement with Angela de Jong.” Still, he can’t help but sneeze at De Jong, with whom he had already quarreled. “I think it’s even worse that Angela de Jong then responds with a column. Then you are really childish.”
FIVE LIVE by Linda de Mol
Lawyer Job Knoester is a guest and agrees with Derksen. “It’s kind of turning into a bitch fight. I don’t think Linda needs this at all. It would have to be way too big for this.” Presenter Wilfed Genee then says with a laugh: “I always wonder how long our contract will run.” Derksen does not think the gentlemen have to worry: „If The All-rounder – what you should be ashamed of – attracts 700,000 people, then we can sit here until we die.” That Today Inside does not just disappear from the tube, as it turned out earlier: after the infamous candle story, the plug was pulled from the program in May this year, but after two weeks it returned cheerfully.
Finally, De Mol’s program gets one more time from Derksen. “The series is already a monstrosity. Badly acted and badly written.”

Shocking prospect: many more Dutch people get cancer, but adjusting lifestyle helps
