Short Poppies DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Growing up I never watched the TV series, Flight of the Concords. However, after watching the stars of the show in many other TV features and films, I definitely think I may have to get into it. Leaving his Concord character behind recently was Rhys Darby who delved into the world of new show, Short Poppies.

Playing many different characters and starring a lot of comedy faces including Stephen Merchant, Karl Urban, Sam Neill and Bear Grylls, this New Zealand adventure looks at a small town and the people within it.

Following a number of characters over the course of one day, the show takes on the form of interview sessions with many funny and clever moments. The script is a step above many others that have tried to do this and the comedy aspect doesn’t drop throughout. Something that will be sure to draw attention to the writers from many.

However, the real winning point for this show is the way in which Darby makes every character seem real. They feel like people you may meet and a few you actually wish were real. You could be guaranteed that they would make you laugh.

There so this show is a great comedy adventure that is a lot bigger than short. That is why I am giving it...
