Reminiscent of the old TV soap Dynasty.
29 November 2017 | by linrb62See all my reviews

By the 2nd episode the story & characters reminded me of the old TV soap Dynasty & the acting is pretty awful. Mauboy should stick to her POP music & altho she is only an average musician it is a heck of a lot better than her acting in this soap series. After the first few episodes the story is very predictable & it jumps back & forth between the dramas that each side of the family have in what I can only describe as chaotic. The producer should have been sacked for it. At first glance this looked like a very good Australian drama series but it has been spoiled by being so chaotic in it's presentation. The locations/backgrounds it set in it are really good & mostly original but the chaotic execution of the story & acting has let it down. The execution is very clumsy & I am surprised it has made it through all the episodes so far. But then TV ratings are over for the year & it fits well with all the old repeats we are currently seeing on Australian free TV. I would have given it a zero rating but it deserves 1 point for the beautiful settings that were used in it.
