Ted Bullpitt's most precious possession is his Kingswood Holden car. He objects when his son, or his son-in-law, wants to drive the car and keeps the keys hidden. He is also unimpressed with his daughter's choice of a husband. Ted's brother is a sales representative for Datsun cars - something else which incurs Ted's disgust, as he feels that his brother should only deal with Kingswood Holden cars.

Simply the best Australian comedy
13 December 2005 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

Kingswood Country is the best comedy ever produced in Australia. Higgins (Ted) is an absolute Australian character. His comments and in your face comedy is similar to Till Death We do Part. Being Australian, I can relate more to Kingswood Country. If you are not Australian, you will probably not understand it. Well worth watching again and again and again. The characters, Ted (husband), Thelma(wife), the children and the son in law (Bruno) are your non typical Australian family. Throw into this, Bob the oversexed and unfaithful used car dealer, his wife Merle and Neville the concrete Aboriginal in the front yard and you have a recipe for side splitting humour. If you ever watch one episode of this, make it the one with Graham Kennedy (Australian television legend). Unfortunately a show like this would could not be produced in Australia anymore because of the obvious racist and sexist overtones.
