Upper Middle Bogan, Season 1HD
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
When Bess Denyar, a doctor with a posh mother, an architect husband and twin 13-year-olds at a private school, finds out that she is adopted, she is stunned. But even more so when she meets her birth parents – Wayne and Julie Wheeler, a drag racing couple from the outer suburbs. If that’s not enough to digest, Bess also discovers that she has siblings – the hot-headed Amber, the not-very-bright Kayne and the bubbly and blonde Brianna. Together the family make up the car racing outfit Team Wheeler. As Bess gets to know her new family, and finds out just how much they have in common, it begins to makes sense why she never quite belonged in her old world. Upper Middle Bogan is a very funny eight-part series that features a brilliant cast including Glenn Robbins, Robyn Nevin, Annie Maynard, Patrick Brammall, Robyn Malcolm and Michala Banas.

My favourite TV show of all time
You won't regret watching this! Great cast and super super funny!!
Special Place in My Heart
When I first saw this, it was shortly after I had been contacted by my extended family for the first time in about 20 years. Bess’ story is, to some degree, my own.
These characters are wonderful. Amber, distracting attention from her deep pain by using her filthy mouth. Margaret, awful but stealing every scene. Although Brianna is ditzy, she’s got a great heart. The beautiful, obvious familial link between Kayne and Oscar. Danny as a whiner. Bess, neurotic but clearly belonging to two worlds. Wayne as dysfunctional patriarch. Julie as full of life as it’s possible to be.
The fish-out-of-water trope works so well here. It moved me to tears on several occasions, not common for a comedy. We should be proud of this fine Australian TV accomplishment.
Absolutely brilliant Australian comedy with a realistic approach to acting and jokes. The only problem was that you get attached to the characters and it ends so suddenly! Great things come in small packages but I just wish there was more :( Upper middle bogan is also directed and produced by the same imaginative people who created 'the librarians ' another incredible series which thankfully goes for longer!
