Give it a chance - really worth it!
13 October 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Having just seen the full season 1, I was pleasantly surprised by Spirited. What first grabbed my attention at the start was intrigue about Henry's story but what kept me hooked was the relationship between Henry and Suzie. Both parts are played by brilliant actors - Claudia Karvan always brings a realism to the characters she plays, and just something that makes you empathise with her. Henry seemed like such a caricature at the start but he quickly develops in to a really interesting character. The relationship that grows between them is something quite special and I really loved the scenes between the two of them. You can just see how the uptight and awkward Suzie relaxes around Henry and how her child-like, fun loving side emerges.

The thing that I didn't like about this show were a couple of the supporting characters. The worst is Jonquil, I cringe every time she's on screen. I get that she's supposed to be irritating (her last name is 'Payne' afterall...) but there is no realism to her. Her character is just too farcical in a show that is otherwise quite realistic. Ex-hubby Steve walks a fine line between funny and a little over the top, but I think he manages to stay on the right side of that line most of the time. He is the likable tosser and is pretty good value for comic relief. I think we all know guys like him! Looking forward to Season 2!
