Amazing, refreshing, very fun series
26 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This was one of my all-time favourite kid's shows, and it gave Australian TV exports a good name. The actual premise was genius, and the characters really did seem as though they were out-siders just trying to fit in on Earth. The universal themes like love, gratitude and truth being experienced for the first time were handled in a slightly too corny way, but in general, there was a variety of content, from drama to comedy. Good acting, good scripts and a refreshing idea. Why was there only one series?
