The Underbelly of Paradise – Full Program


The show seems to parody many police and crime reality shows, such as World's Wildest Police Videos and Gangland.

At one point, a man is holding up a sign that reads "Down with this sort of thing", which is a reference to a similar scene in the Irish sitcom Father Ted.
