Street Smart–Pilot

Street Smart was described in TV Week‘s previews issue as a “hilarious and entertaining look at a team of bumbling crims who dream of fast cars, attractive women and getting rich quick.” I feel like the pilot lived up to most of this description.

When I read that Street Smart is the brainchild of Here Come the Habibs co-creators, Tahir Bilgic and Rob Shehadie, I wondered whether there would be any comedic similarities between the two shows. I did try to avoid making comparisons as I felt it was unfair to do so as this is a completely different show, and I mostly succeeded, however there are two similarities between the shows that are too obvious to be able to ignore: the over-the-top plot and stereotypes.
