Storyline

The Australian goldfields period drama Rush (1974) was given The Late Show treatment with a slick re-editing and re-voicing which produced absurd plotlines, strange characters and 'Stupid Hat Day' on the goldfields. 'The Olden Days' originally appeared as 20 three-minute stand-alone short segments in _"Late Show, The" (1992)_, and were later strung together and released on video.

Hilarious and ingenious.
7 April 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This series is SO funny. It was created by, I reckon anyway, some of the funniest Australians ever. The best bit is in the last 'episode' when they stop the over dubbing, and the guy actually says "The man's mad!" That's sheer brilliance. I recommend it to every Australian - I don't know if Americans or English people would find it as funny.
