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: I never go into the outback without a decent supply of water, and the general rule for how much you'll need is three litres per day, per person, per man, per degree over 25 degrees celcius, per kilometre if walking on foot, in the winter months dividing it by two, plus... another litre... at the end.

The Best Comedy TV show ever?
14 August 2004 | by (Dorset, England) – See all my reviews

A one word answer to my question. Yes. This is the very best comedy I have seen EVER. I was flicking through the channels on my freeview box and happened to catch this on ftn, thinking it was another Steve Irwin documentary. I soon realized it wasn't as I was quickly on the floor desperately trying to stop laughing. If you like laugh-out-loud comedy with lines like, "Brandon traveled North, then East, then South and then West at which point he realized he was going in circles." Or, "He named the mountain, Mt. Disappointment after his wife, Inge." Then this is definitely for you. 10/10
