Storyline

Swift and Shift Couriers is an Australian comedy series created by the writers of Fat Pizza. Based on a courier business in the western suburbs of Sydney, the business is run and staffed by a rag tag collection of layabouts, misfits and socially challenged individuals. Essentially everything that can go wrong does go wrong in typically outrageous fashion. With a mix of cultures and dodgy work ethics this business is an absolute disaster and the show makes for an eclectic viewing experience with a distinct take on Australian humour.

A pretty entertaining show!
15 December 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Who says Australian shows are boring? I do, well... did. But then I watched this show and it's restored my faith in Australian television, I was never really a fan of Always Greener or Sea Change to be honest. But enough about that. Although Swift & Shift was a but short, only about 6 episodes, it is definitely worth it. It's full of... some would say "questionable" humour, but then again, what isn't these days? Even the classic show the Simpsons has strayed into some "questionable" jokes in past years. Every episode is chock'o'block full of gay jokes, fat jokes, midget jokes and the likes. But unlike other shows, this one quite surprisingly pulls it all off seamlessly and very very funnily!

In short this is a really terrible show, and that's what makes it fantastic!

8/10
