Angry Boys - (S01E01)

Comedy . Drama

The series kicks off in Dunt, South Australia, home to identical twins Daniel and his 90 percent deaf brother Nathan. They dam surf, they skate, they do 'mainees' in the street in their mother's hotted up Nissan Pulsar. In their bedroom are the 'Wall of Legends', pictures of the people they consider their heroes — surfer Blake Oakfield, Japanese skater Tim Okazaki, U.S. rapper S.mouse, bikini model Emily Chase, their late dad and their prison officer grandmother, 'Gran'. Gran lives and works at Garingal Juvenile Justice Centre for Boys together with her co-worker Penny. In her spare time, Gran cares for her 23 guinea pigs and makes superhero pyjamas for the young inmates.

    Angry Boys showcases his considerable talents in the notably imperfect world he's created.

  • David Wiegand

    Angry Boys is an equal-opportunity offender, but its infectiously juvenile humor, not to mention its secret heart and, of course, the appeal of Chris Lilley's multiple impersonations, make it very hard to stay angry for long.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Sarah Rodman

    The mixing of those elements--crassness, poignancy, social commentary--is a hard one to master, and Lilley doesn't always succeed in tying them together in a way that is funny beyond the amusing cringe of recognition.

  • Rob Owen

    Angry Boys will certainly have some appeal to fans of offbeat comedy but it seems unlikely to become a mainstream hit.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    [It] leaves only the flashes of comedic brilliance, and even they don't light up the sky very often.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    The expansion emphasizes the sameness of his writing and his performances, and makes the payoffs of the jokes feel small.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    His wavelength is extreme narrowcasting, and most viewers are likely to find Angry Boys just rambling and dull.
