Born out of the telemovie of the same name, Offspring is a contemporary drama series about Nina Proudman, a thirtysomething obstetrician and her fabulously messy family. Following the Proudman family's adventures searching for love, fulfillment and balance in the chaos of modern life, Offspring is about the life forces that drive us all: love, sex, babies, food and music. Stylistically fresh and visually exciting, Offspring mixes conventional narrative drama with flashbacks, graphic animation and fantasy sequences, showcasing the vibrant world of Fitzroy, Melbourne, where Nina and the extended Proudman family go about their unpredictable daily lives.

User Reviews

Best thing we've seen on Netflix in donkey's years!
26 January 2017 | by The_late_Buddy_RyanSee all my reviews

Seven full seasons of this awesome, addictive Aussie series couldn't have come at a better time. Our protagonist, hardworking OB Nina Proudman, lives within shouting distance of her extended "nut bar" family members in a scruffy/trendy Melbourne suburb. She may remind you a bit of Elliot on "Scrubs"---gorgeous but socially challenged, "neurotic, often obsessive" (says her admiring boss, quite the nut bar himself) and frequently trapped inside her own head. The workplace comedy stuff is entertaining, the tale of Nina's search for love with a series of "moody, damaged" colleagues is quite relatable, and the show has lots of insightful things to say about the difficulties and rewards of family life.

Plot lines are suspenseful and involving, sometimes melodramatic (casual sex often results in the titular offspring; season 5 is a lot more like "Parenthood" than "Scrubs" ), and the writers do resort to some shameless romcom shtick to keep things moving, esp. in the earlier episodes---panting lovers kept apart by doofy misunderstandings and cell phone glitches and whatnot---but I'm guessing you're not going to mind any of that very much. Btw, who- or whatever (primitive voice-rec software?) transcribed the CC doesn't have much of an ear for the elusive Aussie accent: "my way" (pron. "my why") comes out as "my wife" in the captions, "Tongan chick" as "tongue in cheek" and "feeling wretched" as "feeling rat sh*t."
