great new show
12 May 2008 | by (melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

When i heard about this new Melbourne show set in a medical/legal clinic i was intrigued and also i like to "support the Australian TV/film industry" and so when it started i was hooked.

I don't get why people don't like it- how many other TV shows out there that combine crime/legal/medical and mystery drama into one show? Anyway i don't care what people say i am enjoying it.

The casting is great (Paul Leydon, Diana Glenn, Brooke Satchwell, Peta Seageart, Patrick Bramwell, Charlie Clausen, Alyssa McClelland, Sam Anderson) as well as the location and the music!!

I do hope channel nine makes a second series, as it is getting better and better.
