Outrageously Fortunate

Now that's some nice leopard print...
Now that's some nice leopard print...

Yippeee! One of my favourite television shows of recent years returns to our screens this evening. Leopard print, AC/DC t-shirts, boots with fringing – it could only be the bogan-tastic Outrageous Fortune. Tonight sees the first episode of the fifth season of the local Westie-drama returning. Expect punch-ups, inappropriate hook-ups, bad language, Shakespearian references* and humour sharper than a Jack Daniels belt buckle.

For anyone either a) silly enough not to have yet experienced the brilliance of “Out-Fort”, or b) wishing to relive the magic, copies of the first four series as well as the excellent soundtrack albums are sifting around in our collection. Catch them if you can.

*The title of the series and all episode titles are quotes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Who says television isn’t literary?
