Okay for a few times
13 August 2012 | by (England, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is quite an interesting spoof documentary and it does have its little moments of humour where the children misbehave and start swearing and all sorts. It's not the sort of thing that people associate with Australia, although of course trouble and distractions occur everywhere and have done since the start of time.

I find sometimes it can be quite funny where the school bullies are playing up again and just can't bring themselves round to genuinely apologising to their victims even though they do try, or do they? Some times it can be a little silly with that Ja'mie character and her friends, even though she is quite clearly played by a man and everyone can tell and it's supposed to add to the humour but to me it really dumbs it down.

Okay to watch a few times but I wouldn't rush out and buy the whole series or anything.
