Awesome
10 June 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I've been watching the reruns on cable, and it's just as cool as when I first watched it as a teenager. Much better than the cops shows we have running lately and the characters are more real with real Aussie slang and speech not that try hard garbage.

It's also an opportunity to spot some of the Aussies that have gone on to foreign movies and TV.
