Best Aussie TV show ever!!!
4 February 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This show rules. If you haven't yet seen it then you don't know what you're missing. Claudia Karvan and Samuel Johnson are two of my favourite actors, and I love watching them do their whole "Alex and Evan sexual tension thing". Samuel Johnson's voice is so sexy. Deborah Mailman is great as bubbly Kelly, and then there's Will, Ritchie, Miranda, Gabrielle, Jason and Simon too round out the nine friends (most of the time). Some highlights of the first season were: Gabrielle and Jason swearing all the time (I don't know if that was meant to be funny but it was), Ritchie realising he was gay after getting with Simon and some other black guy who's name I can't remember and, of course, Alex and Evan getting together in the season finale. You have to watch this show for a better look at great Aussie drama. It's more realistic than Neighbours (and I watch Neighbours too but it's not half as good as The Secret Life Of Us). I can't wait 'til the next season starts!!!
