SBS One, Mon­day, 10pm ★★★ You’ve prob­a­bly seen the bumper sticker that says love is a Ger­man shep­herd. In the world of Housos you’d be more likely to dis­cover love is a low­ered Com­modore. This is a place where bum­bags, para­chute pants and car­ry­ing your cig­gies in the sleeve of your T-shirt are con­sid­ered high fash­ion. Housos is worth a look just to see how it takes po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness by the scruff of the neck and drags it through the sewer, all the while shin­ing a bru­tally comedic light on the real bat­tlers and the marginalised of mul­ti­cul­tural Aus­tralia. The in­hab­i­tants of this largely em­ploy­ment-averse com­mu­nity, who swear like Gor­don Ram­say and are ex­perts in thumb­ing their nose at au­thor­ity, must mo­bilise in this episode when they dis­cover that the mayor (Amanda Keller) plans to re­zone their sub­urb, Sun­ny­vale, and shove its proud res­i­dents to the ‘‘a--- end of nowhere’’.
