Spirited - a lovely, quirky comedy that is a pleasure to watch!
What a wonderful show "Spirited" is - in this day of TV that must teach you something, embarrass you or scare the heck out of you, it's a real pleasure to watch a show that doesn't expect anything from you but to just sit back and enjoy. From the start you get swept into the story of Suzie and Henry (and family and friends - a great cast all round) and the impossible nature of their relationship.
The leads - Matt King (comedian actor/writer from the UK) and Claudia Karvan (Aussie actress that's been on our screens for over 20 years) are cast perfectly as Henry and Suzie with the chemistry to match.
I've just finished watching the final episode in the 1st Season and without giving anything away, I think it does give some answers but raises many more questions. These questions (hopefully) will be answered in the next Season (which begins filming in Australia in January 2011) and I for one cannot wait! If you can get hold of this show than please do so - it's so different from anything out there at the moment and it's worth every minute!
