Finally, something refreshing
16 January 2017 | by zarkoborovcaninSee all my reviews

We have an opportunity to follow the first season (2014 as it seems) on our cable until very recently (i.e. until the beginning of 2017). Finally, a really refreshing, from many aspects, TV series. For one, it is not American, and has the very needed touch of authenticity of New Zealand (language - English, but not British nor American nor Australian); the humor is very much the type universally accepted, the scenery is beautiful and, not the least important - in one way or another the NZ wine can be felt & smelt from the TV screen, for which I am grateful. Also, the idea of the old guy proving to be the boss (although initially looked upon by younger generation as some fosil instinct spieces) for real + music + old timer he drives = fantastic! And the most of all, we finally see something of New Zelands production on our screens. Marvelous! Keep on! Greetings from down under from your point of view!
