Fourteen year old breakdancer and mischievous delinquent, Jonah Takalua, returns from Tonga to start a new life at Holy Cross High School.

Dominating the playground with his gang Fobba-licious, amusing himself with endless filfthy jokes and a schoolyard rivalry with the Rangas, Jonah challenges the school system, getting himself into more trouble than ever before.

Each time comedian Chris Lilley builds on his back-catalogue of mockumentaries, the more he divides his audience. This is his fifth creation after last year's "Ja'mie: Private School Girl". Reading countless reviews, as my journalist-geek-self likes to do, it seems opinion is conflicted on "Jonah From Tonga". Many love its real-life school setting and hyper-active teenage star. But others are outraged at offensive jokes, or the feeling the show negatively stereotypes Tongans.

I don't believe this is the case at all - Jonah is certainly annoying (described by his straight-talking teacher as "probably the most f***ed-up child I have ever taught"). But the attention-to-detail in his adventures, back-story, and friendships shows that he is far far beyond stereotype. This is Chris Lilley's most interesting character yet.

In 2007's "Summer Heights High" Jonah was an attention deficit annoyance of a 13-year old, cussing, semi-illiterate, disruptive in class. In between break-dancing he would graffiti the toilets and teachers' cars. He was eventually expelled from the school, but his exit was tearful. Without Jonah - that series wouldn't have been as good. He just had -this innocence about him, and great charm! Teachers and students- admit it; you all know a Jonah!

In this series, he is now 14 and living on the island of Tongatapu with his Uncle and Cousins. The humour is strong from the start as we see him throw coconuts at children, and graffiti his Uncle's truck with the word "H*mo". His naughtiness is so bad he is sent back to Australia.

Veery funny series. Chris Lilley really inhabits his characters. Every teacher I know recognises Jonah - there's one in every class. Wonderful series! More please, Chris!

Could not play it on our DVD player at all....Guessing because it's from the UK and it is not coded for the U.S....Not the fault of the seller, just a bummer for me. I can, however, play it on my computer.
