Hermes: Cooler than a frozen cabbage
9 August 2005 | by (Gosford, Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved this show when I was growing up. I was around the same age age the gang when they first showed it, and watching this show was like being on an endless holiday. Looking back at it, Ralph was a total goose, but I liked him anyway. Kelvin was...well everyone's got a "Kelvin" living down the road, a red-haired loser that wears flannos and no one likes. Julie was pretty hot. Babe was kind of annoying.

But then there's HERMES! Hermes is the greatest Australian television star ever. He's better than Nudge and "The Fat Kid" from Hey Dad put together. He's cooler than that Gothic Edward character from Home and Away. He was really Australia's answer to The Fonz, only cooler and fatter. If I was that teacher, I'd be giving Hermes herpes.

But of course they had to make some more series didn't they? Season two was kinda cool but lost the whole 'adventure' thing and turned into a show about fighting big business (can anyone explain why they wanted to build an Olympic pool on Circe Island? There's 25 people there and they're all too poor to afford the entry fee. And you just know that Kelvin would urinate in it). And the third series? Geraldine as the main character? No Ralph? A race horse being trained on the island??!! It sucked.

More shows like this please Mr Australian TV. Less of those crappy shows that are half Aussie, half Irish or whatever.

And BRING BACK HERMES!!!!!
