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".

Worst show I have ever seen
17 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been loving watching shows from Australia this last year, so when I saw this one I decided to try it. Wow. I have never seen anything this bad. What the heck is this mess anyway? Are there really people like this in Australia and do they watch this show? Who is the audience? It is stupid, crude, I know they say F-ck a ton on Australian TV, but this is ridiculous. This is like a bunch of 13 years old who are drunk and think they are funny. Gross and just icky. I truly hope there are not people like this in Australia because that would make me sad. Thank goodness that country has some amazing quality humor and wonderful shows, like Upper Middle Bogan, Offspring and I enjoyed Mr & Mrs Murder and Please Like Me, A Moody Christmas, just to name a few. Thank goodness I saw those first.
