Hilarious, witty, and one of the best TV shows out there... Just kidding.
28 September 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

It seems some of these positive reviewers just can't accept a negative opinion can they? I have to be honest - I have lived in New Zealand all my life, and I think this show sucks.

For instance, it isn't funny or smart. It uses stale insults, racial slurs, and witless comebacks for jokes. Though that isn't the case in some moments of the show, this is what this its like most of the time.

Also, it only aims for banal humour rather than exploring other emotional views. Whether to shed a tear or feel a rush of astonishment, it has nothing to offer but its so-called 'comedy'.

As well as having terrible writing and all, completely annoying characters, bro'Town is such a tasteless show that there is nothing more to talk about it, apart from its humour always turning into an epic fail.

I know much more people respect the show in a way that I don't, but trying to argue with a differing opinion makes you seem like a bro'Town character - "If you don't like this show I'll beat you up!"
