Season 1 is total comedy gold. I'm pretty fussy with comedy and definitely don't give good reviews to tv or films from NZ just because I'm kiwi ....there's been so much bad comedy from NZ over the years...but this is right up there and easily one of the funniest things to come out of NZ in the 2000s
