Summer Heights High

Because I promised Dave I would.

I’ve been enjoying watching Summer Heights High on HBO Canada.  It’s a fake documentary series following three people through a term at an Australian public school, Summer Heights High.

The three people we follow are all played by the same actor.  He’s quite fantastic.

I assume, based on the often-overlapping dialogue that it is somewhat improvised. It’s really quite well done, and I implore you all to check it out. Implore.

Here’s a clip of Mr. G, the gay power-tripping, self-involved drama teacher:

Here’s a clip of Ja’mie, a private-school girl who was chosen as a one-term exchange student to Summer Heights:

And here’s my favourite character, Jonah, who is all kinds of trouble:
