Fast Forward regulars Magda Szubanski, Jane Turner, and Gina Riley improved greatly on that show’s patchiness with this superior sketch comedy series, which is now perhaps best remembered as the original vehicle for the Sylvania Waters parody sketch that begat the highly successful Kath and Kim series (2003 – 2005).

Gina and Jane also featured as drag queens on a Community Access TV show and Gina shone as Clare, the bitchy power-suited editor of a tabloid women’s magazine, with Jane as her cringing dogsbody assistant Jodie and Magda as the neurotic writer, Anna.

A Home and Away spoof was one of the funniest and dumbest things seen on Aussie TV in the 90s.
