What an extraordinary thing. The new comedy from Matt Lucas and David Willams, Come Fly with Me, is not being screened in country Victoria tonight as it might be too much for unsophisticated country folk. I don't think I have ever heard of any thing like this happening before. I am truly gobsmacked.
What a pity our ABC did not buy it as they did with League of Gentlemen and Little Britain and we would then have nationwide complaints about the show being in poor taste , instead of complaints only coming from the capital cities.
Of course the show will be offensive. Sadly some do take it all too seriously. I had a good internal laugh at Chris Lilley's latest effort on our ABC. Angry Boys was cleverly written, as to be expected, and at times had me squirming. The character Gran is a prison officer in a juvenile detention centre. Just from memory:
'Ok, football game boys. Form two teams. Light skins over here, dark skins over there. Yes Tommy, I know you are aboriginal, but your skin is pale. Get over with the light skins.'
