Bro'Town on Oz TV - what do you think of it?
Natalie Craig writes in the AGE Green Guide 'Naughty New Zealand cartoon series Bro'Town grafts politically incorrect subject matter onto Biblical allegories...'
In Australia it's currently showing on SBS TV on Monday nights and is a seven-part series.
I've seen four of the earlier episodes on video, a Maori friend gave us. We laughed ourselves silly at the antics of this bunch of Auckland Islanders but at the same time were rather horrified by the language and attitudes which make fun of everyone and everything. It's made by the Naked Samoan crew who also did the film 'Seone's Wedding'. The dialogue is very quick and of course has those different accents - Kiwi and Islander, so a second viewing might pick up on some of the jokes.
Some of our friends just do not laugh at Bro'Town but I guess I am immature enough to think it hilarious.
