Not worth anymore funding.
22 March 2006 | by fiveritesSee all my reviews

Bro'town was over-hyped and over advertised. Sure, there are certain areas where it would provoke a small giggle from me, but mostly I found the humor immature and dry. I do however, applaud the writers for helping us to try and laugh at the stereotypes we give each other. Advertising it as New Zealands own SouthPark?.........no, not even close. Unfortunately, most non New Zealanders would not get this at all. It has many Polynesian themes that even some New Zealanders would not understand either. Most episodes seemed to have been rushed and not thought out well at all. On a positive note, I liked the theme music, nice bass line.

Not good for kids or adults. Might go down well with doped up teenagers or the mentally retarded.
