  • While it could be a good aussie version of the Canadian hit Trailer Park Boys, it seems to cater to the lowest common denominator. Lacks any real cohesion, but has some funny moments and cleverly created characters.moreless

    5.0
    I am a MASSIVE fan of the show Trailer Park Boys and when I initially heard about housos I thought maybe this could be a passable stand in.

    In my teenage years I enjoyed Fat Pizza (as in the earlier comedy series rather than their gonzo style crap that followed!)

    Basically the show is a brilliant idea with some great situations but it's got no real... cohesiveness. It's like a skit show with only one set of characters. No seeming progression and far too over the top.

    It really needs someone to take the helm and keep them in line, much like I assume Mike Clattenburg did with Trailer Park Boys (have a look at the 'Drunk and On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour' by the actors from TBP... pure awful!)

    Most of the characters are well constructed if a little (okay, very) unsubtle, and I really liked Ian Turpie's narrator role - he was probably the most cohesive part of the whole show!

    I'll probably watch a few more episodes before writing it off completely, but my suspicion is it will degenerate from here.moreless
