Ja'mie: Private School Girl: Season 1 (2013)
Critic Consensus: While Chris Lilly is a diverse and funny talent, Ja'mie: Private School Girl verges on obnoxious with tired high school antics that fail to hold interest for long.
Tv Season Info
What at first seems weird, awkward and discomfiting - a grown man hanging out with teenagers - evaporates by the second or third episode as Lilley becomes consumed by his character.
The deliciously baroque (and strangely feminist) climax of Private School Girl leaves little doubt that Ja'mie is still a very naughty girl with a slew of bad habits-and I hope she never breaks them.
Their all-that activities become redundant and tiresome at WARP speed, raising the overall question of whether watching Ja'mie: Private School Girl on a continuous loop would be worse than eternal burning in hell.
Like Tracey Ullman in Tracy Takes on... or Matt Lucas and David Walliams of Little Britain, Lilley excels at playing multiple characters.
Lilley's Ja'mie...is a tongue-in-cheek critique of the extremes of modern girl culture. But what's impressive -- and a little scary -- is how squarely he nails it.
