Police Rescue is a unique blend of character driven drama and fast paced action adventure. The Police Rescue Squad are the real heroes of the Police Service and handle a strikingly wide range of work from road accidents to train disasters to the prevention of suicides - the Squad are constantly laying their lives on the line to save others. The series deals with the dramas that surround rescue work, the unique characters attached to it and the humour of the after-hours lives of the Squad's colourful personalities. Stunningly filmed action sequences in and around Sydney, tender and engaging personal stories at it's centre, Police Rescue is a series that will keep you on the edge of your seat - and touch your heart.
Many of the rescues are dramatic, and things like 2 trains colliding, quite a bit of staging. up & down sides of cliffs & buildings. they keep the stunt people & special effects ;busy.
much of the melodrama is pretty routine. what annoys me, is they are always driving & taking on a cell phone (pre smart phones) and they drink & drive, a lot of drinks or "just a few"- and these are supposed to be Rescue squad. Mickey wants to go out to a scene. they re at a gathering, BBQ. He knows he had too much to drink. Asks Georgina, have you had "much to drink". she says no. so 2 drinks re OK to drive. and he is too drunk to drive, but OK to drop down on a rope or fish someone out of a dangerous situation. about the divorce, Mikey, he was a cad but want st get back, 2 sons, is pretty pedestrian. I guess it gives his character dimension.
