Good value Australian drama series. Yes, really!

8/10
Author: Spacelamb from Australia
9 July 2008

David Caesar and Susie Porter shake off the foul stench of Mullet with this superb local production that shocked the nation by actually being good. With a cast of mostly non-professional actors and such a painfully worthy-sounding scenario RAN threatens to be awful but is actually completely ace. Susie Porter is typically excellent but the big surprise is the total amateur Charles Passi. He excels as the shifty but charismatic Russ. The characters are three-dimensional and the story lines are genuinely interesting, rarely descending into melodrama or stale cliché. My only real complaint is that there are only six episodes and I was greedy for more when it ended. That said, the resolution feels very natural and the less-is-more approach ensures the quality doesn't dip. The Australian TV and film industry often seems like one giant sheltered workshop but this can be watched without covering your face with your hands in shame. Result!
