Great looking show
8 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

wow what can i say , I'm excited . After The Almighty Johnsons I've been looking for a Kiwi gem to balance out my weekly viewing , I think i might have just found it . So far so good . just watched episode 1 and cant wait for more. As a prequel to Outrageous Fortune we get to know Theodore aka Ted as a safe cracker in his younger years , with Anotoinette Prebble playing his wife. This show is quirky ,( Of course it's from new Zealand) with some pretty clever writing .and having grown up in New Zealand ,this show definitely captures the look and feel of the country i grew up in. Characters are engaging and have certainly left me with a desire to get to know them more as time goes on. Lovers of outrageous fortune will definitely enjoy this hope it keeps up .
