Yo have you seen Summer Heights High yet? It's a ridiculously underrated HBO mockumentary series following life in an Australian public school from the perspectives of a drama teacher, a bitchy private school exchange student and our boy JT, who spends the first eight episodes punking, breaking and tagging his way to expulsion. (Incidentally all of these characters are played by the same person - writer/creator/comedian Chris Lilley).
Call it season four of The Wire* with a down under dash of Degrassi; a gripping firsthand look at the struggles of young Jonah's crew as they try to stay out of trouble whilst keeping it real. Other serious topics "made funny" include bullying, teen dating, drug overdoses, homosexuality, racial tolerance, ginger tolerance, anorexia, special people pooping in the classroom, suicide, obesity, AIDS, attention deficit disorder, and the top four kinds of abuse (verbal, physical, sexual, animal).
Twirl around to this frisky number while checking out montage videos for Mr. G and Ja'mie. Is SHH better than Flight of the Conchords, or Season 2 at least?
