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.
ABC have been re-running this at 1pm every Thursday. It's been great as I've had the last 3 weeks off because of HSC. I used to enjoy this show back in 1992, when I was about 10 or so, and I tuned in today hoping that it was as good as I remembered. I was right. This show is brilliant; every episode is like a miniature movie, the entire standard is incredibly high. DON'T watch the movie though, it's been made to sell the show to overseas markets and stuff, and its nowhere near as good as the TV series. All up, this is as close as you're gonna get to a perfect TV show (except the last series... it's more of an epilogue than a series)!
