Nice Slice of Madness
4 April 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Quite entertaining and funny in it's own twisted and politically incorrect way. A nice slice of the madness inherent in modern life and Sydney in particular. It's a 9-part series from Paul Fenech. He's the mad genius behind 'Pizza'. As you'll gather from the title, it's all about the staff of a courier company. Part of the grand comedy tradition of transport and taxi stuff ups. It's a comedy of errors, or should that be terrors? Having had to deal with the transport industry first hand when work in the education industry, this inspired silliness is spot on and close to home. There's going to be a second series in late 2009. Watch it and it'll cheer ya up a bit.
