Good start for Australian TV
5 July 2016 | by sleepyhatSee all my reviews

The script is not tight enough. The dialogues can be slow and boring sometimes. Everything else seems fine, until an ambassador's wife claimed that China is unlike US can handle being viewed as bad. That gave a chuckle, whether it's the true belief of whoever wrote it or it meant to be sarcasm. All governments of any nation are equally with hidden agendas and secrets, with fear of being viewed in its true colour. The logic is slow but getting there, hopefully. The settings are not as smooth and natural, but definitely a good new beginning for Australian TV. Worth a 7 for still room for improvements. Too bad Daron Herriman's role is short-lived. His performance was the best.
