Summer Heights High has three main characters, all played by Chris Lilley: egotistical and troubled (is there any other kind?) performing arts teacher Mr. G, bullying delinquent Jonah Takalua, and private school queen bee Ja'mie King. But sorry, no offense, Ja'mie is the star (see video). It's at its best for quotations and in individual scenes rather than an overall story, because Lilley does not have other substantial characters to play off of. But what there is is good. It's like he spent high school writing down every stupid, self-absorbed thing that everyone, especially every teen girl, said and is performing them now.

Hilarious portrayal of school kids and teachers.

I enjoyed the Australian slang, but it didn't really work for me and I bailed after only a couple episodes. His portrayal of the female character was kind of annoying.
