Soul Mates (TV Series 2014 -) – TV Series Review
Plot: This is the story of two dickheads, bound together through different incarnations spanning the course of human history.
Review: Soul Mates follows the story of a couple of friends who are continually drawn together across the course of human history. In 2013, they are a pair of fashion-obsessed Bondi Hipsters. In prehistoric times, they experience all of life’s firsts as a couple of cavemen. In 64 BC they are designing and installing booby traps in the tombs of Ancient Egypt. In 1979 they are two New Zealanders known as Kiwi Assassins. In the year 2145 they are working in a time travel agency called Travel Time.
Soul Mates is a hilarious Australian comedy show that pokes fun at just about everyone and everything in between. Such as when they are in pre-historic times, the cavemen lads assume that in order to reproduce they have to masturbate on the “Tree of Life”, then they discover oral sex, and hence they perform it on each other.
Jump forward to 1979, and the boys are a couple of Kiwi Assassins, sworn to protect New Zealand from the lures and traps of Australian life. They are a crack team of Kiwi secret agents, recruited by the New Zealand “Munistry of Dufinse” to protect NZ’s international interests against Australia in the 1980’s. Their first mission in Aussie is to try and convince Russell Crowe (who is a child actor) to move back to New Zealand. Of course the boys fail miserably by epic proportions. (Watch the scene where the lads open fire on the weeds).
Jump again to modern era, and they “work” in a clothing store, and discover that they are on the brink of releasing a new fashion label called “nothing”.
The show pretty much involves a non-stop series of skits, and is blended together nicely to bring to Aussie TV something I have not seen since Steve Vizard’s Full Frontal, or Reno 911.
Soul Mates is entertaining, and although somewhat offensive in parts, it is a good show that is set to run for an initial 6 episodes.
Verdict: Bromance through the ages
My Rating: 7 out of 10.
