I'm sorry Lavina but I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the locations and the acting but I have to admit there wasn't the brutality as there would have been in the early stages of the settlement of the real Australia. I also found that certain things didn't look true to life eg When the woman gets flogged shes up and walking the same day after 25 lashes (I don't think so)flogging would have been a major injury which would have needed several days if not weeks to get better. There also wasn't the broad spectrum of ages in the prisoners, there was no age limits to who was transported from children as young as 5yrs through to the elderly and most were sent for as little as supposedly stealing a piece of bread.
