Storyline

After 150 years, the deceased sisters Hazel, Rebbecca and Sophie return to their 19th century home, which has been turned into a boarding school, where they are pupils. But the times have changed in former colony Australia, where Vitcorian fashion and society gave way to modern ways. The sisters are ghosts (although in normal bodies) which they hide for staff and schoolmates, although Jonathan, the smart roommate of hunk David, finds out and is sworn to secrecy to satisfy the ghost council, which supervises the new ghosts.

Best children's television in a long time.
17 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not being a child for a long time, its been a while since i've seen a kids show thats noteworthy.

Dead Gorgeous is one of these. A beautiful mix of comedy and drama, add a dash of romance, great actors and a well written script and you have the best ABC show since Silversun (2004).

Even though its quite clearly targeted for the early teen female market, Dead Gorgeous is so well written that it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It also has an originality thats refreshing in the age of vampires, vampires and more vampires.

While the cast is 99% Australian (which is excellent being an Aussie myself) and all the actors do a fine job, the one Brit in the cast Poppy Lee Friar is a standout. Certainly one to look out for and she has shown some great versatility after seeing her in "Beautiful People". Alexandra Coppinger is a well deserved mention as well, in her TV debut.

Definite one to recommend, and hope to see a DVD release and a season 2!!
