Trivia

The idea for the show came from a series of skits from The Late Show (1992) entitled "Wallaby Jack". See more »

Goofs

There is a running gag through out the serious of deliberate continuity and factual errors. For example when two people go to shake hands there is a cut to a close up shot of two hands shaking, but it always the same clip no matter who we see about to shake hands. See more »

Quotes

Russell Coight: The cattle froze to death, which proved something of a setback - although it did make the muster considerably easier.

Yeah, it's okay
17 December 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This show is definitely a show that tries too hard to get a laugh out of someone. That isn't a bad thing and can actually lead to a few laughs (The slapstick is always fun to watch) and it does have a good premise going for it but for everything that works there is also something that doesn't in my opinion.

The premise is to take the typical show you'd see on The Discovery Channel where someone would talk about the beauty of nature and seem like an expert at both understanding nature and surviving any problems that may occur. Now take someone with a love of the Aussie Outback and talk about the beauty of it and yet knows nothing about nature or surviving problems that may occur. He is even pointed out as wrong in an episode and also constantly hurts others and himself.

My complaints against this show is that it tries too hard to get a giggle out of the audience member. Shots are repeated over and over throughout the series with the intention of comedic effect (sometimes it also happens within the same scene). Instead I almost groan because it seems less like something used for comedic effect and more that the editor only had 2 minutes to edit a scene together before it broadcasts.

If there is anything else it is definitely that if the character of Russel Coight gets any of his facts wrong for comedic effect then unless you know about the Aussie Outback or nature - most of them will fly over your head. It's not a complaint (That would just sound stupid) but It is something worth noting.

So I did like the idea and the physical humour is fun to watch most of the time. Most of the time the physical humour does result in pain but other times it doesn't. The problem with that is the key element of physical humour is misery so that then the joke can be laughed at.

So if you just want a half hour to kill then this is worth a look in my opinion. It isn't that great, it tries WAY too hard but if you can look past that then this show is worth a look.
