Back in my days of adolescence, the undeniably cool cast of Heartbreak High were secret idols. That warehouse they lived in! Man, I wanted to be there. But when that went off air, the only taste of beach life in Australia was the vacuity of Home and Away. So it was with real nostalgia, and a full-on rib cracking laugh, that I caught my first episode of the spoof documentary Summer Heights High. It’s absolutely hilarious, there’s no two ways about it. It’s The Office, as interpreted by an Aussie high school.
