Excellent Australian (quirky) Comedy-Detective Show.....Refreshingly different
17 March 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this show and give it 8.5/10. It's just not predictable, well-acted, tight editing & camera work and a great script.

To start with I had low expectations as the promo was lame and the leader actor "Shaun Micallef" I felt would never be able to hold together an hour show, as I had seen him prior as a comedy compare. As it happens the series was written by Shaun & Jason Stephens and they have done a great job… well at least until episode 4 "Atlas Drugged" which is when I typed this.

To put it simply this is a truly original spin on the murder-cop show genre in which the plot whilst still clever is really a simple elevator to the clever & subtle humour, derived from delightfully timed lines and fresh comedy writing. Watch it, this is a good show and there are so few on free to air!!
