Ben and Rosie try separating after 10 years of marriage. The story of their relationship is told in two halves _ one from the male view, the other from the female view. The truth lies somewhere in between.
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.
CRASHBURN taps into the dilemma of modern relationships: it's not only about falling in love that's the easy part it's about staying in love. How do you keep the thing alive and interesting when passion has given way to slippers, tracksuits and reality TV and the pledge of 'forever'' seems highly ambitious? Scarce. This series lets us in on the lives of a man and a women in the past and present, his side of the story, her side of the story, and the friends in between. Collectively, Crashburn reveals the perspective of people who we love but fail to consider and ultimately, the costly repercussions.
Crashburn was a 13-part series which aired in Australia in 2003. Like many other Australian TV shows though, the timeslot for the show was dragged back to a later time after only a few episodes.
It was unfortunate because I found the show to be rather intriguing. The acting was quite believable and that is always a plus in any television show.
Crashburn's main stars, Catherine McClements and Aaron Blabey, play Rosie and Ben Harfield, a married couple going through a difficult stage when their marriage hits a brick wall. One of the most intriguing aspect about Crashburn, was it's ability to delve into the characters lives, in a "he says"/"she says" kind of way.
I enjoyed Crashburn, and although it isn't my most favourite show, it certainly deserves some credit.
