The geezers who turn up pretending to be South African by constantly referencing District 9 and Sugarman but then doing equally bad impressions of other accents had me going

Trayce, the foursquare YT video was close enough to the American experience that it had me in stitches

Also, GET OUT OF THE KILN

Ha that bit cracked me and my other 'alf up because he's always saying "sneaky fuckin prawns!" and then they said it which was unexpected.

Yeah, it was this observation I liked about it. Shouting 'FOCKIN PRONS!' has become a default whenever people of a certain age try and do an SA accent.

about 50% of my running internal monologue is quotes from this show

I have begun saying "look at your ______"/"these are my favorite __________" about practically everything

Also, my partner memorized the first two verses of "Relatable" and starts rapping it randomly

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 4 December 2020 04:53 (two months ago) link

it can be a little overwhelming--and I absolutely hate looking at two of these three dudes--but it's generally a really fun and funny show.

the funniest one is also the most annoying to look at

Specific Ocean Blue (dog latin), Friday, 4 December 2020 13:44 (two months ago) link

Yeah their look is def what put me off to start with. I am sick of manbun giant beard hipster. I live in manbun giantbeard hipster central.

Which, funnily enough so do they, their studio/office is a few blocks away from my house.

episodes 3 and 4 fell off a bit, will watch the last two still, they have the attitude if not yet the quality control or focus

The manbun giant beard hipster barber sketch was good, tbf.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Saturday, 5 December 2020 12:23 (two months ago) link

one month passes...

Forgive the thread spam, but I wanted to note that this show's 2020 season is nominated in the 2020 ILX TV poll:

ILX's Best Television of 2020 Poll / VOTING AND CAMPAIGNING THREAD / Voting Ends After January 29, 2021

If you like this show and you'd like to see it have a good showing in the poll (running in February) all you need to do is submit a ballot including it and your other favorites (3 minimum, 25 maximum, ranked by your favorite to least favorite) to forksclovetofu at gmail. It'll take five minutes; get to it!

three weeks pass...

My partner has incorporated "Let's lock that in" into his corporate-speak and it's the funniest fucking thing to hear on his end of a conference call because I know running through his head is "Every morning at 7, I take the DVS box set of The Crown and pop the whole thing in my mouth, yum yum yum"

I haven't seen this yet, but one of the Aunty Donna trio was involved in creating this sitcom for the ABC.
