Goofs

As it is sung by non-Tongan speakers, the series theme song "Tamasi'i Pau'u" (Naughty Boy) is incorrectly pronounced as "Tamasi'i Pa'u". While Pa'u is not an actual Tongan word in itself, it is part of a bigger word, Pa'usi'i, which translates to "molested". See more »

User Reviews

Funny up to a point
14 June 2020 | by briancham1994See all my reviews

These spinoffs from the Summer Heights High TV show feature one of the characters in depth rather than switching between them. This gives us more focus but at the expense of wearing the material thin. I think I liked the original format more because it kept things fresh. I'm surprised that Jonah and Ja'mie got spinoffs but not Mr. G considering that he was probably the most popular character. This show demonstrates why. Although Jonah is a funny and endearing character, it is only entertaining up to a point and there is a finite limit for his much they can get out of this one character.
