Summer Heights High

25 Oct

Yes it has been right out on the edge in what it dealt with and in the realism of its language. But I will say two things: I haven’t seen as total a set of character creations as the three that Chris Lilley simply inhabits: you could really be forgiven for thinking we had three different actors; Chris Lilley is a brilliant linguist and sociologist.



The next Wednesday night comedy series The Librarians looks promising but has a hard act to follow.

Perhaps we will look back on the Howard years as a golden age of comedy/satire! Think about that…

    He is a genius Ninglun. He certainly tapped into something. As for what, I’m not sure but I know that I squirmed in parts where I would be saying “you can’t say that”. Loved it. More please.
