Show Preview: Angry Boys

PREMIERES Wednesday 11th May, 9PM ABC1

Chris Lilley’s latest comedy, in which he plays the five central characters, of which Nathan and Daniel Sims are the focus- as Daniel aims to prepare a going-away party for Nathan.

There will be 12 episodes on Angry Boys, each 30 minutes long.

The ratings for the premiere in Australia will be predicted to be around 1.6 million (the premiere for Summer Heights High rated around the same). But due to its timeslot being half an hour earlier, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect 1.7 million, given its broader appeal.

Generally very good, with Lilley’s excellent track-record generating a lot of anticipation. A bit was made over the considerable presence of the word “f-ggot”, as well as Lilley apparently donning a black-face getup to play the role of rapper. S.mOUSE, which we all know got Hey Hey it’s Saturday in trouble in 2009. Time will tell whether it creates a bigger furore, though.
