Australian Adult Version of Sesame Street
10 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The basics of the stories are good. The conflicts are real world. The stories worth telling. But then, the characters are not realistic or deep, they are 1 dimensional. The stories are obvious, and not at all entertaining or interesting enough for an intelligent adult to watch.

The show honestly reminds me of the American PBS TV show Sesame Street. Here's why: A) It's trying really hard to somehow teach a life lesson. B) The characters are easy enough for a 5 year old because they are shallow with all the shallow stereotypic details flushed out, have only 1 dimension (ethnic and racist, cliché problems, ranging from overt, obnoxious and obvious to just boring variations on stereotypical person trying to breaking a stereotype) with no complex conflicting motivation who do exactly what you expect, and if your lucky "learn" they were wrong. C) wow, wish there even was a C, but the show doesn't have that much depth…

I wish I could say this is just an updated version of the 1971 All In The Family (updated only by including more than just black/white in race and more issues). But it's not even that, because it falls flat on drama and humor. It's just Sesame Street for adults with flat boring predictable characters telling childishly simple stories to attempt to teach a lesson.

The acting, production, camera work, and most elements range from average to really impressive. But the writing and plots are so simplistic, obvious, and trivial, it is shocking anyone could get a paycheck from "writing" these stories.
