Not sure why Pine Gap is getting bad reviews. The topic is perfect for the current political climate, the acting is sensational and the location scenes in Alice Springs and surrounds is stunning.
I'm aware that life inside Pine Gap is likely to be tedious data gathering performed by a bunch of 'yes' people but that would make for tedious viewing. I like that series writers have created such dynamic, diverse, intriguing characters who have opinions about real things. (In the real world they world they would never have been allowed to work in 'intelligence'). I hope there will be a new series.... feel that there are still many loose ends.
