Fantastic series!
19 July 2018 | by radkins01-2See all my reviews

We watched the first four seasons on Netflix, and became hooked on what is a really great series -- so much so, that we purchased a region-free DVD player and ordered the Season 5 and 'Family Portrait' TV movie DVD's from Australia.

Why the Australian network cancelled this series is beyond us. From the reviews, and the ratings, it is clear that this is an immensely popular show. Someone in network Programming is asleep at the wheel in this case. But, we've seen this before, from the original 'Star Trek', to 'Last Man Standing', 'Timeless', and a host of other great shows that were cancelled way before their time. (Maybe Netflix could order up new episodes of Doctor Blake, who knows?)

If you're considering a series to watch, we highly recommend this one!
