Fantastic show, throughly entertaining
26 November 2009 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Hats off to Southern Star on this series, so entertaining and the title is spot on :) What a tangled mess of relationships. Nothing flashy about the series just a gritty Australian drama following the lives of half a dozen families. Justine Clarke, Ben Mendelsohn and Kat Stewart are excellent. The first series has just finished and I really hope they bring it back for another one as it left on a bit of a cliffhanger. Shame it's not available for everyone to see on commercial TV but Channel 7, 9 or 10 would only wreck it with product placement and adverts.

Having missed all of Love My Way I'm glad we caught this one from the start.
