A Silly But Fun Episode
31 May 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I disagree totally with the earlier reviewer. I'm Australian, and one thing most of us do well is laugh at ourselves and our idiosyncrasies. Yes, this episode was overflowing with Aussie clichés and some of the accents were a bit over the top, but the silliness just added to the fun for me. I particularly loved Phil's lame attempts to blend in with the locals and his collection of interesting facts about the country that he would use at every opportunity. In comparison to some U.S. shows' attempts at "downunder" episodes, I thought this turned out pretty well. Does anyone else remember Dennis Weaver as McCloud riding his horse over the Sydney Harbour Bridge? Now that was embarrassing!
