Absolutely brilliant series
10 April 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a gem of a series, just perfectly put together, and - that rare thing - something which knew when to stop, so there is no tailing off, just a glorious and appropriate finish. It's funny, clever, warm and beautiful, and every character is perfectly cast, from the main players (Sigrid Thornton, David Wenham, in later seasons William McInnes) through to the supporting cast (Tom Long and John Howard are standouts, but they're all good). As time goes on there are 'in-jokes' and things to look out for, such as the short exchanges between Kevin and his son at the end of every episode, and the viewer feels a part of this wonderful and quirky community. It's scandalous (but not really surprising, I suppose) that Australia is known overseas by shows like Neighbours and Home and Away, and this wonderful piece of art has not yet received due recognition. I live in hope!!

:D
