    Great Fun!

    Watched the series and had to get the DVD. Much fun to watch the episodes grouped around the characters and of course the bonus is the outtakes. We have watched the outtakes over and over and still laugh with the actors. Series is based on high school in Australia, but there are global elements that are attached to high school and the students no matter what country the school is located. Humor may push buttons for some about what is PC, but it feels more like reality t.v. (and if you like the Office) you can't help but find the humor. Highly recommend for a break and a good laugh, but as they say in Australia, "you get that".

    This is the best!!!

    We (my family) watched this on HBO over the holidays, and have been quoting each of the characters regularly since then. The series is totally hilarious, and Chris Lilly really is fantastic.

    SUMMER HEIGHTS HIGH

    This is one of the best comedies ever. Everyone should buy this. I can't wait til We Can Be Heroes comes out here in the U.S. If you like sarcastic in your face humor, SHH is the best this year.
