    Russell Coight does it again. Thinking he's an outback bloke and thinks he knows what's he's doing. This episode is about Russell taking a young joey named "Joey" back to his habitat,points of surf life-saving,helps hopeless hippies fix their van, giving a ride to two female backpackers north,being a tourguide on a river car which ends in disaster and releasing a song called: Outback Man. To end this review here are the lyrics:



    "OUTBACK MAN"



    City folks dont understand

    The way things are out here

    A country bloke

    will share a joke

    and buy you a nice cold beer

    You're sure to find a welcome and a fridge that's tightly stocked

    Country hearts are always open

    Country doors are never locked

    A trusty ute,

    A comfy swag,

    A shotgun and a smile

    That's livin' Outback style

    I love the bush, the bush loves me I'm part of this great land,

    I'm an Aussie,

    A dinkum Aussie

    I'm an outback man. (Oh yeah)moreless
  • Definately the best episode in this series, getting back to the standard of the first series.

    This episode is about taking a baby kangaroo from the zoo and reintroducing it into its original habitat. What results is an adventure through queensland with plenty of mishaps to keep us entertained. Early on we come across one of the stock standard gags that is seen in every episode, someone has a broken down car and Russel is sure he will be able to fix it. This car is owned by a couple of hippies who offer Russell their homemade cookies (hash cookies). The result is Russell actually fixing the car for the first time ever, and then him riding on the windscreen/roof, obviously under the influence of the hash cookies.



    The next big gag is another usual in the series, which is Russell being awkward around females, trying to impress them with his knowledge of the bush, which is quite obviously wrong. After a while he decides to give the two girls a lift up to the next town, but during the trip the girls start trying to seduce Russell. The girls tell Russell that they would really like to go for a swim on a private beach if he knew of any, and that they could have a good time there. Russell obliges and drives them to the beach, and when they get there he jumps out of the car and runs straight for the water. The girls do not follow him and instead steal his car, leaving russel standing there without any clothes.



    He does finally get the kangaroo to his destination, and on getting there he puts a transmitter around the kangaroos neck. As usual he gets the battery polarity wrong, and the result is a crispy fried kangaroo.



    This was the best episode of the season and i think its because they kept it to simple slapstick in unexpected places instead of spending the whole episode trying to set up one joke that ends up being not very funny.moreless

    • At the end when the credits are rolling, it shows Russell stranded in a pair of bathers waiting for another car. The car that goes past is the one that he 'fixed' earlier in the show, with the 'hopeless hippies' in it.
