It's unlikeable, uninspired, disjointed, and basically just dull - an appalling remake of an average book.
13 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Don't waste your time. This show is utter tedium. It's unlikeable, uninspired, disjointed, and basically just dull - an appalling remake of an average book. The character development is rather plodding and the characters themselves, while mostly well acted, are just not worth wasting time on. Lots of people dislike the show because they find the characters unlikeable - that doesn't bother me so much, I usually like dark characterisations - but these are just really uninteresting characters. You don't care what happens to them, so long as it happens somewhere where you don't have to hear about it.

I suspect if given to a more competent production company it may have been possible to make this series at least mildly interesting. Please ABC, stop commissioning Matchbox Pictures to make this sort of rubbish - you should be asking them for a refund. While you're at it I'd like them to refund the 8 hours of my life I lost having to watch this tripe.
