Too early to say for sure, but the first episode gets a thumbs up.
9 July 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Giving a rating out of 10 seems silly, as I've only seen the first episode, but this show does look promising.

The style of The Hollowmen is very similar to Frontline, being shot in a candid documentary style. Also like Frontline, it is satire covering important issues. basically the theme is: A government only cares about how they are perceived, rather than caring about any real issue itself.

A nice guitar rift breaks up the action, and a great opening credit sequence brought me right in to the action. As far as the cast, it seems first rate. Never seeing the Primeminister is something that has been done before, but it does add a certain realism to the show, by saving The Hollowmen from using a fictional person as our leader. I've never really found Merrick Watts all that funny, but I guess time will tell on his character.

Rob Sitch's character is hilarious, constantly writing down and repeating buzz-worded nothings and talking a lot of hot air, whilst Lachy Hume's character, though possibly as spineless as Sitch's, does seem to have things to say. I'm sure a strong and interesting dynamic will develop.

I look forward to future episodes.
