Quotes

Det. Joe Hill: [to Sophie, about interrogating a teenage girl witness] Look, you talk to her now because now's when we're going to ge the truth, not later when they've had a chance to think about it. You play the Big Sister routine if it works, but you be prepared to go hard on this one.

Action, Mystery AND a good perve!
25 October 2002 | by grosbiggleSee all my reviews

When I first saw the adds it intrigued me, now that I watch the show, I'm hooked! It's a great Australian show! Sure the acting might need a touch up, but the plot that comes about each week is superb! It gets you hooked in. I love shows that get you thinking, and this one certainly does! Not to mention the stunning lookers in the cast, newcomer Don Hany for example :)~ also the boys will 'enjoy' old favourite Brooke Satchwell and the hot Freya Stafford! I only brush my TV off once a week, and that's for White Collar Blue :)
