Top job
10 March 2003 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Let me get something straight, I hate shows and movies that think something is funny because it contains ethnic people. It is extremely stupid and over-used. But with that being said for some reason this show can grab you (or me, at least) amazingly easily.

The humour is low brow but the way that it is filmed is great. Lots of quick cuts to and from different scenes. Also the different sorts of shots they have for action shots, like a pack of meat flying threw the air. It is (obviously) strapped to the bottom of the camera, but the great perspective it gives is hilarious.

The first season was easily the best, not that season two wasn't good. With any luck season three will keep it up. 10/10.
