Celia Hodes: Everyone thinks I've lost my mind.
Shane Botwin: Everyone thinks I'm weird.
Celia Hodes: Well, I can see how you might give that impression.
Shane Botwin: I really don't care what they think.
Celia Hodes: Good for you. Let your freak flag fly.

One of the funniest situation comedy/dramas ever
28 March 2006 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

The wit runs brilliantly throughout each episode and has to be seen at least twice to hear the lines missed whilst laughing. Great cast, exceptionally well written and an absolute twist on suburban life as we know it. I doubt Ozzie commercial TV will pick it up as the base for the story will definitely not be appreciated by the more modest masses

  • which is a pity for it gets my vote as the very best show to come

along since, say, "Sex & The City". Relationships develop without ever falling into saccharine mode. And the comedy is not predictable. Well done to the writer and well done to whoever had the forethought to see how wonderful this show truly is. A classic!
