Summer Heights High is an Australian mockumentary television series written by its star performer, Chris Lilley.

The show parodies high school life in Australia, and explores social problems such as sexism, racism, homophobia and bullying.

Although it was met with some negativity, Summer Heights High was a roaring success for the ABC, and won a Logie Award for Most Popular Light Entertainment/ Comedy Program in 2008.

Did you watch Summer Heights High and did you enjoy it?

Brilliant! Genius in observing human behaviour while making us laugh..and then starting the conversation as to why we do.
Yes. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it, but I did enjoy tuning in.

It's not aired over here, but it sounds like something teenagers would enjoy.
It was actually sold for international distribution to BBC Three. You're in the UK, right?

I rarely look at BBC 3; it doesn't show the programmes I'm interested in, so that's why I've never heard of it.
I have not even heard of this one which is odd as I watch ABC a lot and always read their programme.

I think old age is setting in and memory is going....

Chris Lilley is quite talented and the show was funny. I liked all of his characters together, but his series of Jonah is a bit monotonous as there only one character - not enough variety. I would like to see a new series of Summer Heights High.
Me too, though there is Angry Boys - which I think is the one to which you are referring - and there is 'Ja'mie: Private School Girl' as well.
