EXCELLENT and Compelling Drama
25 February 2016 | by Man99204See all my reviews

I saw this program listed on Netflix. I knew nothing about it. Brian Cox was the only actor in the series I had ever heard of.

I have watched the first ten episodes - and was mesmerized.

It is one of most well scripted series I have seen in longer than I can remember.In this type of program, the script drives everything else - and it is very well done.

The ensemble cast is totally believable from start to finish. They sell the script in a completely convincing way.

Another great perk is that this series is filmed in Queensland Australia,. Each episode is brim full of incredibly beautiful scenery and the local flavor and culture.
