Home and Away: Episode #1.4938 (2009)
Home and Away is known for its extremely dramatic story lines, and over the years it's tackled everything you could probably think of. The storyline here follows the rape of Charlie Buckton, trying to prove that her attacker Grant Bledcoe did actually rape her when she was about 15. Charlie tries to convince her daughter (who until recently pretended to be her sister) Ruby, who was conceived through the rape, that Grant did sexually assault her and several other women who previously admitted it to Charlie. Charlie has used a stunner gun on Grant (in a scene that was edited by Channel 5 in the UK), and is holding him hostage in an abandoned shed, where she plans to force the truth out of him by torturing him. Ruby discovers where Charlie is and what she is up to, and tries to talk her out of harming Grant, just as she getting through to her, Ruby tries to rescue Grant, and it's revealed that Grant did, in fact rape Charlie. The pair tell Grant to leave town as he threatens to expose what Charlie has done, but Ruby plans to stand by Charlie and lie for her if Grant reports her.
This is one of the more stronger episodes of Home and Away, in which it deals with, not only adult themes which are present throughout, but the intensity of what is going on between Charlie, Grant and Ruby. In the past, the show has suffered editing from UK channels ITV and Channel 5 (which still makes minor edits), and its episodes like this for which this happens, other reasons being that there could be brief scenes of strong violence. This may be a strong episode, but also a great one.
McLeod's Daughters (2001)
A Brilliant Show!
As a guy, i am not a fan of TV shows aimed at a women's audience, which i guess McLeod's Daughters is, but when i first watched this show a few years back, i found it to be great and entertaining. Apart from the annoying pop soundtrack, this is a brilliant show, it is well acted and it seems to be believable and realistic up until around season seven anyway. Claire and Tess were great as the two original McLeod's sisters, and with the arrival or new characters and the departure of the original characters. Like Home and Away and Packed to the Rafters, McLeod's Daughters is another great show to come for down under. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Australian television.
