On TV, as in life, the workplace can bring the most unlikely assortment of people into enforced proximity. And the staff of the Middleton Interactive Learning Centre are a suitably mixed bunch. Their greatest trial, however, is posed by the woman in charge, the uptight, self-righteous, prodigiously insensitive Frances (co-creator and co-writer Robyn Butler). In this six-part ABC comedy of cringe, Frances' world is turned upside down by the return of her high-school nemesis, ubervamp Christine (Roz Hammond). As the centre readies itself for the premier's visit in Book Week, the impact of Christine, as the new children's librarian, threatens to undermine everything Frances believes she has created.

This is a HORRIBLE show. I love humor and British humor... but this Australian show is terrible. Basically, it is like the US The Office, if you replaced Michael Scott (Steve Carell) with an incredibly racist woman (I don't why they think being insanely racist is funny) and made it much cruder (SPOILER ALERT: scene of a man pleasuring himself in a shower; scene of a wheelchair bound overweight woman posing as a nude model). I gave it two full episodes to ensure the pilot wasn't just a miss (many shows find their rhythm a few episodes in) - but when the third episode opened (spoiler alert) with a woman being man-handled/sexually-assaulted in public, I just couldn't watch it any more. This is one of the least funny and most offensive things I have watched. (And I've laughed at many of those crude Monty Python sketches - this is just unwatchable.)

This series is hilarious. I work at a library, and so many of the little background details ring true.

There is a lot of crude humour in this collection of Australian TV episodes but I must say it was hilarious!
