A terrific show filled with biting satire and a tongue in cheek look at modern suburbia.

Summer Heights High is the latest ABC comedy hit that has become one of the stations most popular comedy series of all time. Starring Chris Liley as three different characters that include Jonah Takulua, an obnoxious Tongan teenager who is the school's bully, Mr. G, the drama teacher or as Mr. G likes to be known "the director of performing arts" and Ja'mie King, a pritzy and snobby teenage girl who has agreed to be part of the Summer Heights High school exchange program. Everything in the program is cleverly and carefully scripted that is definitely a comedy with high expectations.


In its essence, Summer Heights Hight is a mock documentary that revolves around a Australian high school with the above mentioned characters as the star of the series. The characters in the series are quite life-like in the personalities that they mimic which makes this series so entertaining and is almost a glimpse at the world of school. Whether it's Jonah's "dick" tation jokes, Mr. G's negative attitude to the lessers of the school or Ja'mie's skank jokes, the series is masterfully written and acted by Chris Liley.


Although I must admit that some of the content in the show could be considered racist or offensive towards certain groups of people which has made quite a few headlines in the media. With no subject too taboo for series creator Chris Liley, Summer Heights High will leave you laughing, gasping and enjoying the series from start to finish. Once finished, check out the entertaining bloopers and outtakes. Highly recommended!
