Quote from: Sonny_Jim on November 04, 2021, 01:56:03 AMAvoid anything by Chris Lilly, just ain't worth it. Very similar to Little Britain in that when it came out it was 'shockingly funny' but is rightly seen now as 'lazy punching down'
Quote from: H-O-W-L on November 04, 2021, 02:40:23 PMSummer Heights High almost works, but the fact that he's in brownface as Jonah just constantly saps it honestly. Like, there's almost genuine character and drama there, alongside the constant yelling of "ranga" and "f-g" and "p--f" and stuff, but it's just not enough. Everything after that is total shit.
Quote from: 13 schoolyards on November 04, 2021, 06:26:27 AM Australia's Sexiest Tradie was a weird throwback to Gervais-era The Office awkwardness, which was funny in the sense that somebody thought that was the way to go for a sitcom in 2021.
Quote from: Povidone on November 04, 2021, 11:12:40 PMI never watched all of SHH but from what I did Jonah appeared to be the best thing in it in terms of writing and performance but well...yeah...
Quote from: H-O-W-L on November 05, 2021, 12:45:52 AMThat's kind of the problem, the central issue, with Lilley's works; his characters half-work as characters, even stereotype studies, but his insistence on also playing them completely undermines that by living up to every offense and stereotype imaginable.

Quote from: 13 schoolyards on November 05, 2021, 06:21:55 AMThe thing with almost all of Lilley's shows, especially after We Can Be Heroes, is that if he's not playing the characters then why are they comedies? There's a few drawn out jokes but a lot of his material - and more as he goes on - is just slightly dramatic character studies.

Quote from: BeardFaceMan on November 04, 2021, 11:26:57 AMI enjoyed the US remake of Wilfred but never got round to checking out the original Oz version, is it any good?
Quote from: samadriel on November 05, 2021, 11:48:21 AMOh man, I listened to, like, seven episodes of Sizzletown and I was massively disappointed. I just got so sick of Tony's various old men, and that straining "what's it gonna beeee" guy
