Watching brotown again
In Australia Brotown is currently being screened Monday nights – I think it is series 3, and they are making series 4 so it must be popular.

If it was briefly shown in Fiji, I’m sure it would be regarded as offensive and racist because it’s about stereotypes and caricatures.
