ANGRY BOYS: HIT OR MISS?
All stand and hail the return of Chris Lilley. His new show Angry Boys
premiered last night and like an awesome shag, it didn’t last as long as you’d like it to but it left a lasting impression.
Fans can stop mourning the death of Chris Lilley’s previous shows – We Can Be Heroes
and Summer Heights High
– that were grossly popular and left unchallenged in the mockumentry arena. So, it’s no surprise to see past character favourites Daniel and Nathan Sims from We Can Be Heroes
feature in Angry Boys
along with their lovable “Gran” who makes the show a belly-laugh fest.
It’s hard not piss yourself twice over with scenes of Gran’s hard-ass governing of the boys at the detention centre especially at her “gotcha” game, the bedtime superhero dress-ups and her “Friday night song”.
Just revealing two out of the six characters of Angry Boys, we’re pretty f----n certain we’ll be in a for a great f----n ride (in Daniel talk ) with S.mouse, a black American rapper; Jen, a manipulative Japanese mother; Blake Oakfield, a champion surfer yet to come.
Over to you: What do you think of Angry Boys? Did he go too far with the jokes?
As expected, Angry Boys wasn’t to everyone’s liking with Twitter going bonkers with tweets approving and disapproving Chris’s show.
Not sure about you lot but we’ll take 30min of Gran over 30min of Two and a Half Men any day – yes, this applies even if we know Sheen is coked up during the show.
