Chris Lilley (We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High) amps up his acutely observed character-based comedy style in the highly acclaimed mockumentary series Angry Boys. Chris brings to life Daniel and Nathan Sims, identical twins who live on a farm in Dunt, South Australia; Ruth Sims, aka Gran, a prison guard who works at a juvenile justice centre for boys; U.S. rapper S.mouse, who finds himself on house arrest after doing a poo on a police car; former world surfing champion Blake Oakfield, a surf gang leader who lost his balls in a shooting; and Jen Okazaki, domineering mother/manager of her skateboarding champion son and creator of the Gaystyle Enterprises empire.

Anyone who loves comedy (and is not easily offended..!) will love this series. I can't wait to see what he has planned next!
We also get to see the lives of their `Legends', who are all being invited to the party. These heroes are surfing legend Blake Oakfield, African American rapper Schwayne Jr who is also called S.mouse! and has all the intellect of a door mouse and a girlfriend with the best name ever - Lasquisha. Chris Lilley plays both of these too. Then their third `Legend' is skate boarding hero Tim Okazaki, who has inspired his over controlling mother to turn him into a global brand, based on the fact that he is gay and therefore everything is `Gay Style', problem is that Tim is in fact straight. His mum is played by Chris too and is my favourite character in the whole show, but they are all pretty good if not excellent.
There are twelve episodes and the stories are all woven together really well and this is done in a documentary style, with interview pieces to camera as well as action footage. The humour can be quite gross in places especially where the twins are concerned and the language can be quite adult, but I just loved it heaps and was totally stoked by it enough to watch it twice. So if a bit of down under humour is your thing then you won't go far wrong with Angry Boys - oh and the opening titles are great too - ripper!
It's the third and currently newest of the series by Aussie genius, Chris Lilley, and was actually the first of his shows I saw. (I watched them in reverse order for some reason). I caught the last 3 episodes when they were being repeated on BBC3 and fell in love with the show after just a few minutes, I knew it was 5* stuff.
There aren't any characters I vaguely dislike in this masterpiece.
The main characters are Daniel & Nathan Sims (17-year old identical twin brothers from Dunt, Australia), Ruth "Gran" Sims (a senior prison officer at Garingal young offenders jail), Shwayne "S.Mouse" Jnr. (an american rapper who had one big hit, and it may have gone to his head a little!), Blake Oakfield (a professional surfer who suffered an unfortunate injury in a fight between his gang and their rival gang) and finally Jen Okazaki (the Japanese mother of a 15- year old skateboarding superstar who owns "Gay-Style Enterprises"). Oh, just a side note: ALL OF THOSE CHARACTERS ARE PLAYED BY CHRIS LILLEY HIMSELF!!! No character had any down sides whatsoever and make me roar with laughter every time. Lilley is a superb actor, I always forget, no matter how many times I watch it, that it's just the one man playing these incredibly realistic and three-dimensional characters.
While funny, Lilley once again shows his incredible skill at making his shows touching and very emotional, some parts I'm not embarrassed to admit, were sad to the point that they brought a tear to my eye. A beautiful mix of hilarity and emotion.
I simply can't speak highly enough of Chris Lilley and his shows, my favourite as I'm sure you can guess being Angry Boys! Every time I finish the 12th episode, The next night, I start all over again with episode 1.
I cannot stress this enough: BUY THIS SHOW, NOW.
