Loves it for all it is...
24 September 2006 | by (BananaLand) – See all my reviews

Even though many may find this series immature and even sacrilegious at times, i believe that this show is a true pioneer for all that New Zealand and more generally The South Pacific has to offer. Seeing as this region is plagued with the stigma of producing a population of thick heads or the supposedly more affectionate term *coconut* did you really think that NZ would produce a ground breaking series about the fundamental errors with the theory of relativity? Hell no! It produced something that every islander can relate to: a comedy of escapism showing a life wit the boyz, fanatical to irresponsible parenting, corn beef, the occasional taxing of goods at the local convenience store and much much more... so to you gang who wanna bring down this awesome show about life in morning side... ask yourself this... when was the last time America produced an animated series on world peace? (futurama doesn't count), when was the last time the French produced a series about there love of England? such things will never be just as there will never be a series like bro town to let us islanders laugh at our own stupidity without the rest of the world reminding us how stupid we are... so to you gang who find it beneath you... enjoy it for what it is.. not all you believe it should be, coz its a sweet show aye.. MORNINGSIDE 4 LIFE!!

PS. To the person who finds the whole series a waste of time... fair enough, that is your opinion.. but there's no need to make crude references to the show and poor comparisons to other series... yes the line "does that mean he's homo ow?" may not be a stroke of genius in your eyes, but did you not think to see the underlying relevance of this line highlighting the ignorance of some islanders to the wider array of sexuality due to religious upbringing or the fact that living with the stigma of stupidity anything different from this such as Vale's new found intelligence may lead to other issues of difference, in this case homosexuality?... and please don't use the excuse that being an Australian makes you unable to the follow the story... you seem to follow the satire and ironies of South Park and The Simpsons just fine even though there are many references specific to America? When was the last time you saw an Amish person waltzing around our countrysides? So please don't try and pass off cultural referencing as a valid excuse, it makes our nation seem ignorant to anything that doesn't have George Bush written all over it and that would be further degradation to our nation...
