A big city lawyer is prompted to undergo a 'seachange' with her children and becomes the magistrate at the small coastal town of Pearl Bay, where the family comes to love its people and the quality time with each other.
A wonderful series based on a group of friends who attend a weekly trivia competition. Their lives, their loves, their dramas. The writers who wrote this series are the same writers who created Outrageous Fortune.
Sydney homicide detective Eve Winter (Rebecca Gibney) solves tough, high profile cases with cool intelligence, fighting bureaucracts, criminals and plenty of advances - unwanted and wanted - to catch her prey.
The Secret Life Of Us is an Australian drama revolving around the lives of the residents of an apartment block in an urban suburb of Melbourne. It follows the characters through some of life's most complex journeys, as they search for themselves in their work, social and family lives, yet always following one simple rule: all roads lead back to your friends. This critically acclaimed, multi-award winning and hugely popular and successful series has gone from strength to strength, delving into aspects of young adulthood never before seen in such an honest and realistic way on Australian television. Featuring an all-star and incredibly talented Aussie cast, including Deborah Mailman, Samuel Johnson, Claudia Karvan and Joel Edgerton, while continuing to find new talent and introducing them in fresh new story lines.
This show is fantastic. Simple as that. I'm usually smiling like a fool during it it's that fun, and along with several acclaimed American series, is one of the best series' I've watched. It's just as good as Six Feet Under (though with less dead people, and ghosts!). In fact, it wouldn't be too dissimilar from a certain "Sex and the City". It contains the same sort of drama and humour (hopefully that didn't put anyone off!).
Set in Australia, it centres on 8 20-somethings who all live in the same apartment complex in St Kilda, Victoria. These are Jason [lawyer], Richie [actor], Will [brick layer], Miranda [actor], Gabrielle , Alex [Doc], Evan [writer]and Kelly [Events Co-ordinator]. Of this rag tag bunch of Aussies, the last two characters give insightful, and wry, commentaries concerning themselves and each other. And they do the usual things you'd expect. Fall in love with each other, bosses, flatmates, or other members of their sex, and make it funny and moving.
At first, it may take a while to understand who loves/fantasises about who and maybe the Aussie humour and drama may not be for everyone ("love it or hate it" as its most often been described) but honestly, it should grow on you, and if you already like lighthearted dramas, look out for this one (Hey, the Aussies can export more than just Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman).
