Rima Te Wiata,
A wonderful series based on a group of friends who attend a weekly trivia competition. Their lives, their loves, their dramas. The writers who wrote this series are the same writers who created Outrageous Fortune.
This offbeat, strange and yet very appealing TV series is one of the better small screen products to come out of New Zealand in some time.
The tracking of so many different, converging story threads, all with their own ample measure of quirkiness, challenged me as a viewer and made it so much more enjoyable that the usual linear story based series we have been subject to. The mystic elements were never over-done and just added to the drama (and comedy).
My favourite character was easily James, the slightly dopey insurance adjuster who undergoes a supernatural experience and spends most of his time trying to figure out what is happening to him.
I congratulate everyone involved with producing a superior TV series and hope we can see lots more from the same team.
