Best Aussie show for years
12 July 2014 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

It has been a long time since I have actually enjoyed an Australian TV series, or movie for that matter. I watched the first episode expecting not much, but I liked it a lot and got hooked. Good buildup, good action and a few laughs. Sam Neill (ex cop) and Bryan Brown (ex criminal?) are a great 'odd couple' both trying to track down money from a bank robbery some 12 years earlier. The writers have done a pretty good job, developing each character with good guys, bad guys, some you're not too sure about and a few twists for good measure. Sure, it's slightly over the top but not overdone as to insult the viewer. Considering it is an ABC show, it's not cheaply made. It has good editing, nicely shot in and around Sydney and the action is well done. Hopefully another series is made. The show made me feel happy, so job done!
