Aussie Humour at its sickest.
9 September 2002 | by vulpes-1See all my reviews

This is australians doing what they do best, taking the mickey out of everyone else. Is anything sacred.... absolutely NOT! "Life Suport" is a show pushing the limits and if you take it to seriously your sure to be offended, but if you take it the way its inteded your in for big belly laughing fun. After just finnished watching the second series I feel that the show has matured well, the charactors have developed well since the last series, with the only change being Alison Barnes taking over as Penne from Abbie Cornish.

So if you like humour thats is away from the norm you will love "Life Support".
