Slapstick mockumentary about an enthusiastic Aussie wildlife expert, Russell Coight, whose haphazard and inept adventuring style ensures that he is a danger to anything and anyone he meets, not to mention himself.

Spoof Australian outback adventure series. Russell Coight is Australia's most inept outback adventurer. Whether it's roping steers, crossing flooded rivers, tackling wild crocs, finding bush tucker or helping travelers out of the mud, Russell Coight will do it... badly.Written by
The idea for the show came from a series of skits from The Late Show (1992) entitled "Wallaby Jack". See more »
There is a running gag through out the serious of deliberate continuity and factual errors. For example when two people go to shake hands there is a cut to a close up shot of two hands shaking, but it always the same clip no matter who we see about to shake hands. See more »
The cattle froze to death, which proved something of a setback - although it did make the muster considerably easier.

This is the funniest outback adventure show I have ever seen. Glenn Robbins is hilarious as the incompetent Russell Coight, who is a typical outback bloke - with a difference. He is constantly having his tent collapse on him, his car gets stuck at least once an episode (and he somehow manages to get out every time, but we never see that), he meets outback folk and interviews them badly. He knows nothing about the bush, and if you ever hear him say the words "this is an endangered species" be warned - that species numbers are about to go down by one.
