This was a top-class Australian series about the machinations of local government councils.
I loved the comic tone, along with the serous dramatization and the character romance. Seeing the way the main protagonists played off each other and tried to outwit each other was excellent.
Usually I am very critical of Australian serio-comedy for it's fairly poor sense of timing. But this series had good pacing, and was very witty. My particular favorites were Geoff Morrell, Rhonda Findleton, Chris Hayward (who I still associate with SNOWY RIVER), and Rhys Muldoon.
Definitely a must see for anyone who can "get it".
