Summer Heights High September 5, 2007Posted by Amanda in Media, Television.
Chris Lilley is back to his best in the first episode of Summer Heights High. Each character is so well crafted that it is easy to forget that they are all played by the same actor.
The problem is that in this program, the characters are a little too authentic. Anyone who has been a high school teacher would almost have to watch this show through their fingers because it is all a bit painful to watch. The taunting of teachers by students rubs close to the bone and brings back some uncomfortable memories.
It all makes me shudder and reminds me clearly why I got out of teaching.
