Versatile and funny - We Can Be Heroes: Series review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Chris Lilley plays several unlikely heros and heroines in their bids to be Austrailian Hero of the year. His is a very gifted actor and each character is exactly and brilliantly played. Even twin brothers have well noticed differences. Most of the characters have a huge personality flaw which is irritating, I'm glad he played a few pleasant ones. The parodies of some stereotypes are agonisingly funny in a deep and black way, a pretty contemporary comedy. There is some slap stick but mainly an oblique look at how there is n'ought so queer as some folk.
