What Is A Hipster?
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  SBS2  |  March 24, 2015

And why will no hipster ever admit to being one? The charming but not particularly hip Samuel Johnson digs into the past to find the origins of the cultural stereotype. Acknowledging that the word has now taken on a distinctively negative connotation and that the peak of the contemporary hipster is actually behind us, the new six- part series Hipsters is a light hearted look back at the cultural phenomenon that was.
