HOUSOS 2020: authentic Australian comedy or basic trash? | TV Bingebox S01E32

Where does one begin when most of the dialogue is shouted and every second word is, at best, “fruity”?

The latest offering from Paul ‘Pauly’ Fenech and his cast of housing commission mates is absolutely consisted with the rest of his universe: Housos, Fat Pizza, et al.

So is his latest offering a comedic reflection of a segment of Australia that is often overlooked – weed, booze, sex-obsessed and foul-mouthed, or is it exploitative, base mockery?

Join Jo, Dan, Brooky and Molk as we give you some great tips, hints on shows to watch and those to give a wide berth to as we land squarely in the TV Bingebox!

In this episode we cover off:

  • Our Clap or Slap shows (ones we’ve been loving and others we’ve had the misfortune to watch), include: Beat The Chasers (7), Condor S02 (Stan), Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine (Netflix), The Mandalorian S02 (Disney+), Dr No/From Russia With Love (9Gem), Four Corners (ABC), Melbourne Cup (Ten), Roadkill (ABC), Southern Charm (HayU), Seduced (Stan), This Is Us (10) , Drunk History (10), Rebecca (Netflix), American Woman (Stan);
