JONAH FROM TONGA

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - You Can't Miss -

COEMDY, ABC1, 9PM

When you think back to Chris Lil­ley’s Sum­mer Heights High, where we first sighted Jonah, there were a lot more laughs to be had. We could see how the con­ven­tional ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem couldn’t man­age kids like Jonah and how his be­havioural is­sues were largely shaped by his home life, but this show takes us to a far darker place, where the vi­cious cy­cle of bul­ly­ing looms large. The real stand­out in Jonah From Tonga so far is Uli Latukefu (be­low), who plays Kool Kris, the coun­sel­lor try­ing to help Jonah turn his life around. He’s a rev­e­la­tion. - DD
