Frayed is an Australian British Comedy Show, It is written by the award winning Australian Comedian Sarah Kendall and Stars Sarah Kendall, Trystan Go and Frazer Hadfield.
Frayed is about a wealthy housewife who currently lives in London. Her husband has just died and she has no money and has to return to her hometown in Newcastle, Australia.
At first I wasn’t too sure about the show. The write up that I read online didn’t fill me with confidence. The first episode is setting up for future episodes and introduces all the characters nicely.
As I have lived in Australia for over 7 years I feel that I could understand the humour a bit better. There was quite a few laughs in the first episode and I am actually looking forward to watching the rest of the show.
Frazer Hadfield puts in a good performance and I enjoy watching the 2 younger ones trying to adapt to life in Australia compared to British life. It is quite a culture shock having to adapt to the heat of Australia compared to the coldness of Britain.
A lot of the Australian characters are exactly what I would expect to see, they are over the top and exactly like a lot of Australians I know 🙂 I hope to watch the next episodes over the coming days and will post an updated review of the show when I finish it.
I was looking for a show that would replace my Kath and Kim fixation so hopefully this pans out and can be another show on my Australian watch list.
