Deeply Ironic with many good laughs
13 October 2018 | by andreaboltreszSee all my reviews

There is no doubt that Plonk isn't for everyone. If you loved This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind or most other mockumentaries, you will find a lot to enjoy in this home-grown version of the genre. If none of those appealed to you, then Plonk probably won't either and I get the feeling that other reviewers, including riccoh68 fall into the latter category. It's OK not to like something because it doesn't work for your sense of humour (or lack therefore) but not OK to pan it outright because of that. This is a show for people with a more cerebral sense of humour, and, dare I say it, a more mature audience. For one thing, you need to know something about wine, weekends away, touring regional Australia and enjoying (or laughing at) the whole winery experience, and let's be honest, there is a lot to laugh about on all those fronts. It's not supposed to be "well acted" - quite the opposite. Plonk pokes fun at so many things, on so many levels, that you'd probably have to watch it more than once to get all the gags and nuances. It takes a swipe at everything from wine-wankers to making a marginal TV show for an elite audience, so it can seem esoteric to some people. We watched both seasons in one sitting - we enjoyed it that much - with many laugh-out-loud moments, and were genuinely sorry when it ended. We especially wanted them to come to the Southern Highlands and take on our own "cool climate" wines. It's good to know that the humour and incisive intellect of the Chaser team is finding new outlets, and we look forward to seeing more from them, whatever industry they decide to take on next.
