In this hilarious series set in a real Australian high school, actor/comedian Chris Lilley stars as three different characters: a vain drama teacher, a self-absorbed boy, and a haughty female exchange student. Hysterical, absurd and frequently shocking, Summer Heights High reveals a world where small issues become huge, social groups are critical, young minds are molded, hopes are shattered and dreams are realized.]]>

This series is refreshing and new. I'm so glad it FINALLY came to America.
If you cant wait, buy the Region 4 dvd. It will work on some American dvd players.
All I can say is that Chris Lily possesses the talents of every one of the Kids in the Hall, Monty Python and the first two seasons of SNL in his little finger. I watched eight episodes in rapid succession, and I'm still desperate for more, more, more!
Mr. Lilly -- wherever you are -- be aware that I am in awe of your talent!
This show makes me want to search for more Aussie shows and to visit Australia for vacation. I've heard HBO has picked this up, I'd recommend everyone give it a try. if you guys liked Ali G & Borat you will surely love this!
It is an odd funny, but when they get it, they REALLY get it! There were even a few really touching moments... and then they get you again!
I had turn on subtitles and Google a few words sometimes because I do not know Australian slang (eg. Povo, Pashing, etc.)
Sadly, the musical numbers in Mr. G's show are better than a lot of musicals I have seen coming out of Broadway lately! At least they are catchy... I caught myself humming one of the songs in the shower the other day! But the show sequences are brilliant... one of the funniest things I have seen on TV in a long time was the dog in the grand finale.
Yes, it is mean... that is why it is funny. Like so many great comedy shows, from South Park to Saturday Night Live, they do not discriminate... EVERYONE gets made fun of. If you are too sensitive to appreciate this type of humor, just skip it. I am gay (one of the big targets in the show), and I think it is hysterical!
This is pretty complex stuff for a comedy; there are a lot of underlying and serious themes under the show's surface, which bubble up occasionally to remind us that these three characters (and other supporting characters) are not evil - just mostly selfish, self-centered douchebags...who are HILARIOIUS!!!
The supporting cast is TREMENDOUS; the students must be primarily comprised of amateurs (if they're not, WOW - THEY NAILED IT!). The adults, from the principal, to the English/composition teacher, the Mr. B's helper, to the "bad kid's" dad - PHENOMENAL.
This show made me laugh, think, reflect, howl, guffaw and deliciously enjoy Mr. Lilley's and the ENTIRE cast's brilliant acting performances.

Chris Lilley is really everything in comedy. The way he creates and explores characters is really bordering on, if not full out genius. Read morePublished 6 months ago by George Otey
