    "A magazine show with an edge, The Living Room did for arts television production what Radio With Pictures did for NZ music — it ripped open the venetian blinds, rearranged the plastic-covered cushions, and shone the light on Aotearoa’s homegrown creative culture. Often letting the subjects film and present their own stories, it was produced for three series by Wellington’s Sticky Pictures. These excerpts from the second series have everything from outsider artist Martin Thompson making art from maths, to horror hamming it up with Taika's Incredible Show." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "Roots reggae act Kora present this Living Room episode from the beach at Whakatane — hometown for the four Queenstown-based brothers. Then ex-Mental As Anything guitarist Reg Mombassa (born in NZ as Chris O'Doherty) talks from his Sydney home about his iconic artworks for Mambo — including the notorious Australian Jesus series — and wonders if he is turning into a blowfly. And finally there’s a profile of self-taught outsider artist Martin Thompson, whose painstaking mathematically-based work has travelled from Wellington community workshops to Wallpaper* magazine."
