Why do Americans analyze everything bloody thing?
4 September 2018 | by gwnhealy21See all my reviews

Look, I am an old Englishwoman been living in the USA for over forty five years and I get it! I get Americans like solving the world's problems. That they always want a happy ending, that they love seeing perfectly groomed people with dazzling white teeth and that they have short memories. What I don't get is that they criticize anyone that doesn't agree with them. I watched this series in two days and loved every bloody minute of it. It wasn't the perfect story, the acting wasn't either but the feeling of normalcy embraced me and I was swept along on the tide of that beautiful beach somewhere in a far off land called Australia. Thank you Aussies for bringing normalcy back to the screen.
