Storyline

Housos tells the not-so-epic stories of Shazza, Dazza, Franky and Kylie - four best mates from down on the block. Sure, they drink away their problems, they might even have frequent domestics but down on the block it's all for one and one for all. Follow the adventures of the residents of the Sunnyvale Housing Commission in every-town Australia. They battle cops and they scam Centerlink, they even have the occasional threesome and swingers party, but once you're down with the crew in the hood then it's " Sunnyvale for life".

Previous Review Is Hypocritcal
2 December 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This show is one of the funniest things the Fat Pizza crew has done. I quite enjoy it. I used to pretty much live like these people for about 3 years, so i can relate. The previous reviewer has it all wrong she doesn't understand because she is from the states. Now if it was a show about rednecks. Maybe a different review would of been put up. Every country has its issues with people on the poverty line. Your country ain't perfect. Now go watch something else or i'll thong ya haha. Paul Fenech has come along way with his comedy, you need to go back to his earlier stuff with Fat Pizza to admire his work. Also have Swift & Shift which was also a great funny show. Must be doing something right with making 3 different shows and now making movies that blend all the characters into the one flick and he plays 3 characters. I myself am a big fan and hope to see many shows in the future!
