I have been a fan even before Rex got a job on the force and have not missed many episodes. I have loved all the series especially Moser and then Gideon. Wonderful actors and very strong roles. I have to disagree with the others that say the plots are weak. At least these guys do some thinking and work out who did it, unlike other detectives who work on the premise that they all did it. As mentioned by other fans of Rex, he is very popular over here in Oz and we can never get enough and go into withdrawals when the series isn't repeated often enough. Tobias's relationship with Rex was great and you felt that they belonged together. So much so that I still haven't seen the last episode with him in it. I just cant bring myself to watch it. We also get to watch it in Austrian rather than dubbed which is a blessing as I would hate to hear these guys with an Anglo-American accent. YuK! I also loved the less than hard-core attitude of the detectives, such as when that separated mum with a young daughter was having money problems and they took her out food shopping. Just cant imagine that happening in even an Australian cop show. All In all one of the best shows on the telly and Rex one of the smartest dogs. I try to get my dogs to watch it and learn something but they don't quite understand it when I tell them to watch this. Rex forever.
