Very Enjoyable!!!
11 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very enjoyable series. A lot of people probably don't realize that once you get past Episode 10?(I think) you get to see a very young Nicole Kidman. You also get to see her in a very different light than you do in say Moulon Rouge. It also has some very fantastic country side. There is a lot that a person can relate to between their day to day life and ours. There is also a lot going on so that you don't want to miss a minute of the movie. Yes it is set in the Austrailian Gold rush days, but that is really cool. They have very well trained stage drivers. It is one movie that I really enjoy. I can't wait for the next season(s) to come out. Hope they get it out very soon!!!!
