Comedy-drama misguided on so many levels it's worth seeing.
9 February 2017 | by adam-703-808689See all my reviews

To be honest, I only watched 15 minutes of Episode One, but I was astounded by the number of levels on which this comedy-drama drove itself into a ditch and stayed there, writhing with wrongness. Scripting, characterisation, casting, direction, costume design, production design, art-direction, photography, colour, acting... all are a series of horrible mistakes wrought by people who seem to have no idea of drama. Really! It's like being a passenger in a car which heads the wrong way from the start of the journey; doesn't even try to find the right way, and keeps driving up dead-end streets, and doing u-turns in the hope that merciless quirkiness will amuse. I'm sure a lot of people worked very hard to make this, so please forgive my damnation, but...wow! Perhaps the drama suddenly found its way after the 15 minutes for which I viewed it, but it was not an auspicious quarter of an hour. It did occur to me that Newton's Law is a strategic move in the alleged plan for Michelle Guthrie to destroy the ABC.
