Who says Oz has no finesse?
17 November 2004 | by BastardfromtheBushSee all my reviews

Being what the ethnic community refers to as a 'skip' - anglo-saxon Australian. Nothing I've seen on Aussie T.V. surpasses this show. But then again, I'm a larrikin and a mug.

Who would have ever thought that the 2nd generation 'choccos' would create their own subculture and create a unique show like this. Banjo Patterson & Henry Lawson would turn in their graves. Even the Sydney characters of C.J. Dennis at the turn of the 20th Century weren't as rough or uncouth as Paully,Sleek (the elite), Bobo and Habib. And that new flower of Australian womanhood, Toula just cracks me up every time she appears.

In a lot of cases, Australians throughout history have been rebellious and couldn't give a tinker's toss what other people think of them. What you see is what you get down here.

To the creators of 'Fat Pizza' - Welcome to the fold fellas...Forget that "New Australian" label. You're as Aussie as they come.
