Wonderfully dark satire
30 June 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you hate all those lifestyle shows on television, then this is for you.

But make sure you can handle some pretty dark satire. If you're idea of sick comedy is "Some Mother's Do 'Ave 'Em", then you'd better stay away. Everything is fair game, from suicide bombers, to people starting bushfires, to people sniffing paint. And if you want any more examples just watch Dr. Rudi looking at the car in the opening titles!!

One of the funniest pieces was about euthanasia, and getting around the fact that it is illegal in Australia. Just dress-up you're loved one in an animal costume and have a vet put them to sleep!

The character of Todd really captures that home handy man seen on so many lifestyle shows. Whenever I'm channel surfing and come across one of those lifestyle shows with a handy man I have to laugh. The actor that plays Todd is spot on in his depiction.

I hope this show gets screened in other parts of the world, as I think people with a weird sense of humour would find it very funny.

This is a hilarious satire of lifestyle shows and is highly recommend. But be warned, it is very dark sometimes.
