As a fan of Countdown growing up, I was riveted to Molly
27 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I just took a huge nostalgia hit watching Molly. Best Aussie TV series I've seen. Meldrum was an anchor for Australian music, but that was pretty-much all anybody in the public saw at the time. The screen writing of Molly is superb, as we connect to a character we can all laugh and cry with, while assuring respect for the subject material. The cast was amazing, and the cameos flawless. Samuel Johnson is perfect as Molly. The show includes awesome cameos as the artists of Countdown, most notably: John Paul young, Skyhooks, Kiss, Madonna, John and Yoko, but my favourite was an amazing Freddie Mercury scene. If you didn't grow up with Australian TV, you might not appreciate Molly quite as much, and that makes me part of an elite audience. I can live with that.
