...I really don't like this show, 24 November 2013
Author: WakenPayne from Valhalla

Okay, I'm going to be a tad more reasonable than the last review I wrote for this show. Chris Liley does have a talent for imitating stereotypes as clearly seen in this show. I first started watching this in High School during my English Class's free time, I hated it at the time even more-so because I can escape from my schooling life to go into a reflection of unlikeable characters' schooling lives.

The premise of the show is to take three cardboard cut out stereotypes, one being a 13 year old boy named Jonah who likes Rap, break dancing, insulting teachers and blaming all the negative things in his life on everyone around him. There's a 17 year old high school girl named Ja'mie who is snobby, racist, prejudice, materialistic, vain and like Jonah, blames everybody else for all the negative things in her life. Then there's the drama teacher named Mr G. He is controlling, whiny, sees himself as some kind of messiah and like the other 2 characters blames everybody else for all the negative things in his life.

The biggest problem I have with the show is (what a shock!) none of the characters are likable. But if we see unlikeable characters then the best thing to do would be to put them in constant misery right? Liley does that only half of the time. The other half is tasteless shock humour or offensive humour. There's even one episode where Ja'mie wants to fund the formal dance and tricks everyone into thinking it's an AIDS charity drive... Really? You had to do that? I personally don't find stuff like that funny, it's annoying to me and offensive to the people who suffer from this problem.

Pretty much all the show is jam packed with humour like that. These unlikeable characters make life for everyone around them miserable and when the consequence of that happens they find a way to say it's their fault. I know some people like this kind of humour and if you like that, then that's fine. I personally don't. I can see some talent behind Chris Liley, I really do. I just don't find over-exaggerated stereotypes of people doing horrible things then blame the consequences on everybody else funny.
