very funny, smart show
28 June 2014 | by prosper1See all my reviews

I have no idea why new zealand is able to produce great television year after year with such a small population. I hope I'm giving anything away by guessing the arts portion of the economy is the highest on the planet.

From 10 outta 10 series like outrageous fortune, step dave etc now comes this totally off the wall blend of comedy; usually only shared at a party with close friends when you've a madcap friend. This is a much watch for fans of QI, Peep Show, Monkey Dust and Greenwing etc. Off the hook funny.

brilliant concept with perfect execution needs a salute. bravo disclaimer I've never been to new zealand never married one etc
