When Ben and Rosie reach their 10-year wedding anniversary, they recognise things are not going well in their relationship. The story of their trial separation and their relationship is told in two halves - one from the male perspective, the other from the female, and often in flashbacks so the viewer can decide what really went wrong.

Crashburn was a 13-part series which aired in Australia in 2003. Like many other Australian TV shows though, the timeslot for the show was dragged back to a later time after only a few episodes.
It was unfortunate because I found the show to be rather intriguing. The acting was quite believable and that is always a plus in any television show.
Crashburn's main stars, Catherine McClements and Aaron Blabey, play Rosie and Ben Harfield, a married couple going through a difficult stage when their marriage hits a brick wall. One of the most intriguing aspect about Crashburn, was it's ability to delve into the characters lives, in a "he says"/"she says" kind of way.
I enjoyed Crashburn, and although it isn't my most favourite show, it certainly deserves some credit.
