Great quircky Australian series
12 July 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

My wife and I have just finished watching the final few episodes of season 2 of this wonderful, gentle and quirky series. Why there are no other reviews of season 2 and only a handful on series 1, I have no idea. For this is the kind of television production that exceeds expectations in every way. Feel good, funny, well acted, beautifully filmed, highly original and, given the concept, believable. And like other non-mainstream series that Australia, and, especially, Great Britain, occasionally throw up, Spirited appeared on our screen with minimal fanfare, was barely watched and disappeared with nary a trace. So sad. Spirited concerns the drawn out no-touch (well, mostly) love affair of socially inept dentist Suze and back-from-the-dead, jaded rock star Henry. From freaked out/irritable beginnings this relationship is destined for sweet interdependency. Lots of speedbumps along the way though. And plenty of other characters, both ghostly and real, to be fleshed out over the course of both seasons. Some characters, like Steve (Suze's ex) and Jonquil (her sister), can be annoying at first but come into their own eventually. The other ghosts who come and go in Suze's apartment block inhabit a complex world of their own , one where sadness and confusion is ever present but also one where both Henry and Suse can help bring wistful joy and resolution. My brother is, Jamie, is a 1st Assistant Director. Jane and I had watched season 1 and were waiting for season 2 to be released on DVD when Jamie mentioned his involvement in the final two episodes of season 2. So in case you wonder, we were already convinced fans. It is just a pity Claudia Kavan and Matt King, especially, won't be making more episodes of this great series.
