Slapstick mockumentary about an enthusiastic Aussie wildlife expert, Russell Coight, whose haphazard and inept adventuring style ensures that he is a danger to anything and anyone he meets, not to mention himself.

Spoof Australian outback adventure series. Russell Coight is Australia's most inept outback adventurer. Whether it's roping steers, crossing flooded rivers, tackling wild crocs, finding bush tucker or helping travelers out of the mud, Russell Coight will do it... badly.Written by
There is a 16 year gap between series 2 and 3. This is unacknowledged in the show. See more »
There is a running gag through out the serious of deliberate continuity and factual errors. For example when two people go to shake hands there is a cut to a close up shot of two hands shaking, but it always the same clip no matter who we see about to shake hands. See more »
I never go into the outback without a decent supply of water, and the general rule for how much you'll need is three litres per day, per person, per man, per degree over 25 degrees celcius, per kilometre if walking on foot, in the winter months dividing it by two, plus... another litre... at the end.

Glen Robbins portrayal of the character "Russel Coight" is brilliant. Russel Coight is a parody of the many Australian identities such as the bushtucker man, malcom douglas to name a few, who decided to make documentaries about the Australian outback. Loosely based upon the Leylands series. Glen Robbins puts Russel Coight into embarrassing situations which shows the funny side of human nature when put into awkward and uncomfortable situations. We see Russel's lies and cover ups as everything doesn't go to plan. The way that Russels character is portrayed is just pure genius. If you ever get the chance to see this then definitely watch it or hire/buy the DVD.
