So bad it was good, 22 November 2006
Author: phurge (phurge@yahoo.com) from Australia

Yes it had lots of T&A, and unbelievable plot lines - but thats what made it so Good! Not to be taken seriously, the main attraction was to see how far out the plot lines would become (and the T&A of course).

It was also notable for the high standard of its cast that it managed to attract. The cast included:

Michael Caton (all round Aussie legend), Cathy Godbold (hottie), Jeremy Sims (now a little more serious), Abigail (legend), Lawrence Mah (serial soap star) and many others.

I also have to say, at the time as an undergrad, it was refreshing to see some TV where the writers were smoking more than I was! Chances, we miss you.

So if you pick up the DVD, take it straight to the pool room.
