Storyline

Just a bit of harmless fun
3 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This show might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoy watching it every week.

Written by the women who did 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries', 'Newton's Law' is a charming, quirky show with plenty of heart. All the characters are well-meaning, the underdogs always win, any mistakes our heroes make are forgiven, and everything wraps up perfectly in the last 15 minutes. Sure, it's not the most realistic (or best written, if I'm honest) show on TV, but it's a whole lot of fun, and refreshingly angst-free. Not to mention, it manages to slip in a surprising number of important messages about gender equality, multiculturalism, and even gender dysphoria.

Like I said, it's not for everyone. But I've got a soft spot for indulgent, fluffy, light entertainment; and 'Newton's Law' hits the spot.
