Best Show Ever!
5 January 2006 | by stevocSee all my reviews

i dunno what this other fulla is on, but all i can say is, "Not Even...Ow!!!!".

Bro town is a timely and pertinent look at the cultural diversity that New Zealand can now finally boast after years of stumbling around in a pseudo-bi-cultural daze.I believe kiwi's are ready to see themselves on screen as they are, and to laugh about it. Sure there are stereotypes present in this show, but that's what makes it so funny. No-one is spared, Maori, Pakeha, Islanders, South Africans, Indians and more are satirised expertly. and as an educated Pakeha, i can say - I laughed. This show is topical - focusing on issues currently causing debate in NZ like CYFS, gambling and racial discrimination.

or as JC puts it best - MARVELLOUS!

After two excellent series i look forward to many more.

MORNINGSIDE FOR LIFE!!
