Funny and heartwarming
26 April 2019 | by scissoredSee all my reviews

I think some of the criticism this show has been getting is a bit unfair. People can be very quick to jump on the bandwagon as soon as something is labelled offensive, without necessarily taking the time to watch or understand it.

In my humble opinion, Chris Lilley has created another six hilarious characters here. Even though they're ridiculous extremes of the stereotypes they mock, they still come across as genuine and likeable (it might take a few episodes). So genuine that I kept forgetting they were all played by the same person! Lilley is such a chameleon! Yeah sure, the humour is crass, but you'll discover by the end that Lunatics actually has a lot of heart. It's got a nice message about not being afraid to let your freak flag fly and being proud of who you are.
