Brilliant and current, but not for the arrogant or jaded!
20 August 2006 | by medcodeproSee all my reviews

For whatever odd reason, when I moved to southern California from Colorado as a young man, a majority of my friends and family wound up being Samoan. This is how I was first exposed to bro'Town months ago. Having said that, you really don't need to know much about Samoans ,or New Zealand for that matter, to "get it". In fact, if anything it is the Kiwi accent that requires a little hard listening at times, but well worth it. The humor is exactly what you would expect from 5 pre-pubescent (4 Samoan and 1 Maori) boys, yet is broad and common enough for any adult who actually had a childhood (and still has a sense of humor).

bro'Town is silly, irreverent, topical, politically sharp and heart-felt at times, like many of its contemporaries (South Park, Family Guy, The Boondocks etc...) I understand that bro'Town isn't "Waiting for Godot" and I have a hard time believing that the Naked Samoans are trying to emulate Samuel Beckett when writing. But for what it is, purely crafted ½ hour adult pop-culture cartoon comedies for 18-30yo males, it is sublime. My friends and I are still quoting Jeff da Maori, yet we somehow still manage to read books with big words. Hmmmmm.

I am anxiously waiting for season 3 at this moment.

Morningside for LIFE!
