This series of the 90's is far inferior to the original 1970's television series, Boney, which was based on the 'Bony' novels by Arthur Upfield.
This 1990's version is a pale imitation of a bright part in Australian television's history, and brings nothing new to the character, the novels, the memory of the of the original, or even to the 'cop show' genre in general. Aside from filling a time-slot, it makes me wonder why they even bothered, and,in a more enlightened era, they should have at least employed an actor of Aboriginal blood to fill the title role, as was written and intended by Upfield.
The 1970's version, produced by Fauna Productions John McCallum, and starring New Zealand actor James Laurenson in the lead role, is well worth the look.
