Cash and Company captures the essence of the 1850's a pioneering era where life was lived on the land and gold was ready for the taking. Wanted by the law, likeable bushrangers Sam Cash and cigar smoking accomplice Joe Brady are men with purpose and the know how to stay one sneaky step ahead of the authorities. Aided by trusty cohort Jessica Johnson, the cunning bushrangers set out to capitalise on the great prosperity surrounding the gold rush. However, challenged to uphold the law, Lieutenant Keogh is on the case and never far behind the bandits. Written by

This Aussie series, taking us back to pioneering Australia, was enigmatic but hugely watchable at the time (1975). A three-man (If you can call it that with 'Jessica' among the number) team of bandits manage to elude the sadistic local cop, Keogh all the time. Short-lived, it had good stories and plenty of pace, plus the atmospheric outback used to its full untamed potential of the period. We in our household used to hold on for it at the end of the week, It was very enjoyable and strange it had a gruff American star, Gus Mercurio. Always on a Sunday (Never say 'never' on a Sunday, lol!) Shame not any Australians have commented on it here, I would've thought an older head may well have come by - hope it's out on DVD one day but I've yet to see it anywhere.
