Brilliant astronomer and university lecturer Dr. Paul Hamilton is given the opportunity to leave London - along with his depressing life, boring job and irritating girlfriend - when he is offered a job and new life at the Royal Australian Observatory, a remote settlement in the Australian outback. In addition to having to adjust to the local climate, wildlife and culture, he finds he also has to cope with the eccentricities of his new colleagues. Written by
It's really interesting to read what others have said about this program. It could be because i'm Australian, but i really didn't see what was so great about this program. I'm a huge fan of Rob Brydon, and usually i find his comedy hilarious, as well as that i've enjoyed work by many of the Australian actors in the show, but to me it seems like a lot of corny jokes and bad attempts at laughing at Australian outback culture. I'm not getting on my high horse because i'm Australian either, i love making fun of Australian culture particularly bush culture (that sounded horrible of me), but it has to be done properly, and i just didn't think this was. It just seemed to me that the writing was a big let down for an idea that could have been amazing.
