Behind the Reviews – Edition #10 (Here Come the Habibs)

Here Come the Habibs is one of the first new shows I reviewed when I launched my reviews content in 2016. It premiered on 9 February 2016, attracting controversy before it even aired its pilot.

The controversy of the show’s premiere was due to the assumptions that some of the general public made about the show being racist. I said in my review of the pilot that “while everyone is entitled to their opinion, I believe that if you’re going to be offended by a TV show, you should actually watch the show, rather than making assumptions based on previews.” Six years later, after having watched and reviewed both seasons of the show, I stand by that statement.
