60 Minutes Gone In 60 Seconds
26 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

That's how this program feels like each episode. Fantastic setting, Blue skies, green jungles, sunny beaches. The acting is first rate, the script is challenging enough to be fun without being too cerebral. That's what entertainment is supposed to be. Its one of those series where an hour is not long enough. As for realism, I don't want to see skanky teeth or manky uniforms but I do agree on the condition of Kitty's hair but then again 'maybe shes worth it'. Maybe in the second series, she looses her memory and The Major convinces her its May Belle Lynn McVitie This story could run and run as the New South Wales colony grows over the decade. If done properly, more series than Stargate SG1 Well done script writers and well done to the BBC for funding it. Feel free to making a remake of Mutiny On the Bounty or Hornblower or anything anywhere hot 'n' sunny on water or in a jungle and I'll be a fanboy of that too. :)
