one of the best Australian shows currently running
22 October 2001 | by (maitland, Australia) – See all my reviews

I heard about this show mere hours before its first episode, so once I knew of it, and what it was about, I couldn't wait to see it.

And it did not disappoint. This spoof of 'lifestyle' programs is extremely funny with the various 'reporters' helping out everyday people with very handy hints.

Some of the best ones are Penne's hints on how to best use your older relatives (leave them in long queues for concert tickets while you can do whatever you want), Sigourney and Todd's tips on how to get cheap help around the home and how to house them (illegal immigrants/refugees in the old chook shed out the back) and Dr Rudi's ideas on how to keep track of old, mentally deranged people by using microchipping.

Overall, this show is a must see.
