Lola and Chelsea know nothing of each other, only that they wait for the bus everyday at the same time. This all changes when the two women intervene in a fatal carjacking and are subsequently thrust into a chase from authorities across Australia with a vehicle filled with cash. The strangers must rely on each other and their instincts while they are on the run.
I went into this series knowing nothing about it. It was refreshing to see that there was a good old fashioned Australian action/drama without needing to engage the help of Vampires, Zombies, Time Travel or Superheroes. I was hooked from the moment it started. Lola (Rebecca Gibney) captured my attention from the get go with her ability to portray a gritty-real person, a tough talking no bulls%it kind of Aussie chick who like all of us, is just trying to get through the day without the inevitable curve ball life tends to throw our way. As the episode progresses we find there is much more to Lola (Rebecca Gibney) than meets the eye, and with the introduction of her kooky counterpart Chelsea (Geraldine Hakewill), the characters begin to develop and an unorthodox relationship is formed.
In the interest of not spoiling this for anyone I will only say that this series has ticked most boxes for me with the humour, the characters and the use of so many locations around our gorgeous country. Wanted has it all and hopefully it will continue to deliver the action and drama one can expect from the likes of Rebecca Gibney. It doesn't hurt that it also stars two of the hunkiest Australian actors in the likes of - Chris Murphett (Ryan Corr) and Josh Levine (Stephen Peacocke).
