great series
28 October 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Perhaps I am a bit biased as my family participated in the filming of the series. I found it to be quite realistic as we live in the area the series was filmed in. Life is very slow here especially compared to the area in New York we originated from. It is also very different in comparison to Adelaide which is 50 km from here. Lack of rain in our area is very devastating for the farmers as I am sure it is through out Australia. It is about time someone shows the true impact that perhaps everyday people and corporations take it seriously enough to do their best to conserve water. Rachel Ward is a lovely woman that took the time to speak to my daughter Amanda who played Pam the "puppy girl" in episode 2. We may be from NY but we are naturalized and take quite seriously the issues facing this country. Keep watching and see what life is like for those that supply our crops and meat. Its a great series !!!
