This Australian comedy was originally called Utopia down there, renamed for US/UK/Canada distribution, apparently because we wouldn’t see the irony. On the surface, it’s about a government agency responsible for the development of public buildings, and what they go through trying to balance budgets with environmental concerns, crazy PR people, and the variable interest levels of their elected officials. What it essentially is, though, is a very funny workplace comedy. With cool accents.

This can easily compete with The Office (both iterations), Parks & Recreation (it’s closest cousin), and even Better Off Ted. The “Roadside Art” episode is hysterical. Thank you, Australia. Totally bonzer.
