Excellent Legal Drama
9 December 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best legal/courtroom drama I have ever had the pleasure to watch. If you ever have the opportunity to view only one episode of this series I implore you to watch it. Chris Haywood as the barrister Michael Kidd is outstanding and so is the portrayal of Sgt Peter Faithful by Simon Westaway. Westaway after this series became one of the most under utilized actors of the last 20 years and it was great to see him appear recently in the much lauded mini-series Underbelly. Once you have watched Janus, or its equally good predecessor Phoenix, you will have been spoiled for life as no other TV series of this genre can match this gem. The one thing that I recall being unbearable about this show was having to wait another week for the next episode.

I long for a DVD release of this series and I hope that the ABC puts me out of my misery soon. I may not have to wait long as I received the first series of Phoenix two days ago. If only all TV was as of this quality and consistency.

I have just learned that the DVD of the first series of Janus will be available on October 1, 2009. I've already pre-ordered my copy.
