Goofs

Humperdoo is introduced as the twenty-fifth great grandson of Jesus Christ. This would mean that only twenty-seven generations were needed to reach the present day. Assuming that the historical Jesus died somewhere around 30 CE it would mean that the average age of fatherhood would need to be around seventy-five years old. However, this could be explained by the supernatural nature of the lineage or the show in general. See more »

Mint but gratuitous
6 August 2016 | by timothyjohnfreemanSee all my reviews

And what a finale.

Sterling performances, great production and adherence to genre. Brilliant, quirky and python-like moments of gleeful stupidity in the face of narrative and type. The season wallowed in self, genre and production tropes at times, but the pure style and indulgence in character won out by a country mile. Casting is great. Laughs keep coming at the most inopportune moments and the sense of humour overrides all. There is inspiration in the finest detail when the show is at its best. This is TV with rocks in- country rocks. Yes, it's adult in content, but stylised and sassy and brassy. The visuals and framing create beautiful emptiness at times and the edits transition with impact and punch. The soundtrack is evocative and classy. The acting is often inspired- particularly by the triumvirate of destruction who hold the frame so well and carry the narrative so amusingly.

Great show- well done people.
