This TV Show Is Explained By Me As Monty Python Made By Australians. I Like Almost All Of The Sketches The Only Ones I Hate Are "Recession Tips" & (I Forget The Name But It Was One Where Magda & Jane Turner Sat There & They Tell Uninteresting Stories & Magda Says Dialogue Like "I Said (Content Change) I Said (Content Change But Different To The First One) I Said (Content Change But Different To The First Two) Now That One Was Crappy) But Besides That You Name It "Skippy" The "Why Poofs Should Be Kept Out Of The Australian Military", The Joke Ads, Anything & I'll Like It. All The Actors Give An Outstanding Job At Making Me Laugh Which Is A Pity For Gina Riley, Jane Turner, Glenn Robbins & Magda Because They Went On To Star In "Kath & Kim" THE WORST TV SHOW MY COUNTRY HAS EVER DONE!, Besides That All I Suggest Is You To Go To Australia Because "You Look Like Peter Garrett" - The Master From The Spoof Of "Kung Fu"
