Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Extremely popular amongst Australian TV fans in particular and comedy devotees in particular, Flipside offered a potpourri of zany sketches, music, monologues, and mockumentaries. The talented ensemble cast served up a bizarro world in which the normal was abnormal and vice versa. Though many of the segments were cleverly scripted, just as many more were spontaneous and off-the-cuff. Telecast by Australia's ABC network, the first of Flipside's seven half-hour episodes was seen on May 4, 2002.
