Enjoyable family viewing
11 January 2005 | by nerdydad1See all my reviews

A watchable show for children in the 6-14 age group, and their parents. Follows a year in the life of 12 year old Wayne Wilson and his friends (best friend Squokka, girl next door Violet, and her younger sister Rosie) in suburban Australia. A nice secondary theme is his older sister Charlene and her awkward romance with Rupert. All good clean fun and I've absolutely no idea what Carmo-2 was thinking when s/he saw references to Wayne's libido or it being inappropriate for children under 17. The most we get is a mild crush by Wayne as he builds a friendship with Violet - very typical of boys his age. For the parents, Wayne and Charlene (and their parents) provide some nice observations on the differences in behaviour between boys and girls (stereotyped, but in a humorous way).
