Fresh, 2011 comedy - but it's not as good as the British series.
FIRST PERSON TO REVIEW: Balls of Steel, Australia - which by the way is the Australian version of the first, British version with the same title. Balls of Steel(Australia)came out in 2011, and I was very hyped up to see what it would be like, and how it'd turn out to be with the first landing episode. To be honest, yes, fresh, humorous, and funny comedy set in a whole other place....but I was left feeling just a little unhappy. I, in some ways, expected it to be exactly as good as the 2005 - 2008 series of Balls of Steel, else even better. But no, it wasn't as good.
It's still a very funny comedy game show, the Balls of Steel (Australia) series, and if you're a big fan of the British Balls of Steel, you'll probably accept the Australian version, and / or appreciate it for what it is. Neg Dupree is the ONLY one from the British series who is, unlike the rest of the British ones, in this too
and might I add, he makes it a helluva lot better and funnier - as
he's the MAIN reason I got into the British one in the first place.
Overall, the Australian series, well, I'd give it a strong 7.5/10, whereas the British series I would give it a strong and solid 9.5/10. But hey, it's still very funny and good to watch - the Australian series.
Thank you for reading.
