Stars Jack Blumenau and Hannah Greenwood share a lot of chemistry, despite the fact that their characters are halfway across the world from each other...
"Noah & Saskia"
Saskia Litras (Hannah Greenwood), an Australian high school student and guitar player, is shocked when she discovers that one of her songs she put on the internet for people to listen to has been stolen without permission by a person known only online as Max Hammer. Saskia vows revenge, and creates a new web handle for herself, Indy, to chase Max down. But Max Hammer is actually just Noah King (Jack Blumenau), a teenager living in England who writes an online comic book for a hobby, and who only wanted to use Saskia's songs on his site because he liked them so much. Behind their aliases, Noah and Saskia form a working partnership which blossoms into a friendship...and maybe more. But they are thousands of miles apart, and Saskia is beginning to feel an attraction towards her work colleague, Ernesto (Bernard Angel).
A very interesting thing about "Noah & Saskia" is the fact that it is a British-Australian co-production. But that's not the most interesting thing about the show, because it's more interesting how truly great this show is. "Noah & Saskia" is a wonderful, hilarious television show, with writing that is smarter than your average children's show. It avoids the typical 'You've Got Mail' and 'A Cinderella Story' clichés that accompany stories about internet relationships. But the best thing about it is the surprising performances here from stars Jack Blumenau and Hannah Greenwood, who share a lot of chemistry despite the fact that their characters are halfway across the world from each other. Unfortunately, there's no word yet of a second season of this strong show, but I'm glad it exists at all.
