User Reviews

An exceptional series!
12 October 2004 | by hellecatSee all my reviews

It seems as though this wonderful series received the same cavalier treatment in Australia as it did in the States. It scored a terrible late-night timeslot which chopped and changed from one week to the next - you never knew if you'd be sitting up until 1am on a weeknight in order to see it... BUT, such was the quality of the storyline, script and actors that I DID sit up until all hours to watch it (I couldn't risk setting the vcr to tape it in case they did change the start time that week!).

It's now been 10 years since it has screened here and yet I still hold it fondly in my heart as one of my favourites.

PLEASE Warner Bros, release this fine series on DVD!!
