Trivia

Star Tim Minchin said: "From the moment I heard about the idea for 'Upright', I knew it was the show I'd been waiting to make. I like stories that make me laugh and think and cry, I adore the landscapes of outback Australia, and I love music, and homecomings, and characters full of flaws. It's awesome to be writing with this extraordinary team, and I'm looking forward to acting alongside Milly Alcock, who I think is a really special talent." See more »

Wow, amazing must see TV
3 December 2019 | by cherylgraham-1See all my reviews

I felt compelled to write a review as I was not expecting to love this so much. It has equal measures of Comedy - Light, Dark and all colours in between, I was captivated from the moment it started. Do yourself a favour and binge watch in one go, my only criticism is the length of the episodes.
