5.0 out of 5 stars Original, hilarious and surprisingly compassionate, 13 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Summer Heights High [DVD] (DVD)
My niece showed me a clip of this on You Tube recently and I knew there and then I just had to have the whole first series. I can't really say much more than other reviewers already have in praise of this highly original comic creation. I found it wickedly funny and also at times surprisingly touching in its empathetic portrayal of Jonah, the unruly teenager from the wrong side of the tracks who just needs someone to understand him. Politically correct educators, spoilt public schoolgirls and a myriad of other ghastly stereotypes are all exposed by the relentless spotlight of Chris Lilley's pin-point observational humour.... so brilliantly subtle in places that you could be forgiven for thinking this was a real documentary.... Mr G's drama class alone makes it worth the money. Obviously it'll depend on what type of humour you normally enjoy, but there surely can't be all that many people who won't at least have a giggle at the sight of Mr G in that pink thing.... I'm smiling just thinking about it!
