Well made show for young people
16 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched 11 episodes of this Australian TV show that is made for teens or older preteens. I am from the USA and have never been to Australia and don't know very much about aborigines or the differences between people who live there. While I understand the references to the Disney film The Parent Trap I don't really see much similarity between that film and this TV show. For me I see more to compare it to an American show starring teen twins Tia and Tamara Mowry called Sister Sister. The twins are separated at birth and are surprised to find each other and learn how similar and different they are since one grew up with the mom in a lower class situation and the other grew up with the dad in a more upper class situation. Here the twins seem to have the same mother and dad but the mom is an aborigine or country person and the father seems to have a new wife and lives in the city of Sydney and there is a younger brother who is well the only way I can put it is white. The twin who lives with the father (who is white) wants to go to visit the mother she doesn't know who is out in the country so the country twin takes her place and the city twin stays out in the country after the dad brings her out to Alice Springs which is "bush" I think in Australia. All of this is very interesting to an American who really has little knowledge of any of this. For some reason I don't really understand the twins are not able to tell that they are twins since there is some kind of twins are some sort of taboo in the aborigine culture. There is also some sort of girls can't be alone with boys there too as this causes great problems for the city twin Yuma who spends time alone with a boy and raises the eyebrows of the whole community. On the other side the country twin Kyanna can't dance and causes a rift between Yuma and her dance partner. The dancing seems like a cross between something primitive and something avant garde. The last episode I watched had the very nosy brother finding out there are twins and racing to tell on the two girls. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens but I'm guessing since the kid is treated as basically a pain the parents won't believe him. I find the show very interesting and much like getting insight into Native Americans here at home who many people may not know much about I get to see a little about Native Australians that I really don't know much about. I also get to see the beauty of a country that I would very much like to visit. I only wish there was a little more time in the show to explain some of what's going on but since this is watched by Australians I figure they know so they don't need to explain something that Americans have no clue about. Families will do well to watch this.
