    Wonderful Comedy!

    This is a hilarious comedy out of Australia. Critics loved it and so did I. If you like tongue in cheek and dark humor, you will love this show. Especially if you liked the original Office or Arrested Development. Another reviewer said that this show was bad, and that is their opinon. However, the show was only given 8 episodes because Chris Lilley, the creator, only wanted to do the show for one school year. Not because the show was bad. Second, HBO did NOT apologize for airing the show. HBO was forced to apologize for a plot point in which a girl overdoses and it is used as the theme for the school musical. This airing coincided with a real life event similar to the show. HBO won critical acclaim for airing the show. This show has such a fan following that is spurred a hit song in Australia, "Naughty Girl", and has produced T-Shirts, board games, and a huge YouTube following. Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful show!

    Finally a series the US did not have to remake..ala The Office (originally British..and much better!), the new series Skins (again British), the new SyFy show Being Human (UK) and the dismal attempt at remaking Kath and Kim (Australian comedy at its best, that should never have been remade!) I was beginning to think American's did not appreciate humour that was made outside their own shores - I am pleasently suprised!! This mockumentary is side-splitting - the caricatures are very clever and sometimes scarily close to reality! It is pure comic genius!

    Chris Lilley is my favorite comedian/writer/actor/musician. He plays all the main characters himself. He does it all for his shows. He connects so well w his characters and plays them perfectly. I never get enough! He's a one of a kind and just brilliantly funny yet he'll also bring out sad emotions too. I just love him and his work.

    I first saw Angry boys on hbo and loved it so much i had to buy this series. I liked angry boys better but this is very funny also. Looking forward to the next project from Lilley. Some people might not get this kind of comedy at first but the more you watch the more hooked you get.

    8 episodes no renewal for second season says it all. not fit for HBO. The show follows to award winning shows in entourage and true blood. HBO appologized for this being aired.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
