Stellar
9 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

The show is set around a deep space observatory in Central Australia and the personalities of those who work within.

The facility is staffed by Aussies except for one English interloper and it is he who adds a delightful twist to many a circumstance.

The eclectic group that staff the facility is highly intelligent, extraordinarily dedicated and personally insecure.

The facility is located not too far from a small outback Aussie town. ( A Pub, a shop and a couple of houses )

This creates a beautiful dynamic between the staff, internally at the facility and the staff with the locals of the town.

This interplay makes for much light hearted humour, very little seriousness and a jolly good time.

The Aussie outback shines almost as much as the delightful performances, the whacki humour and the night sky.
