Binge worthy....
3 January 2019 | by CarlaDeeeSee all my reviews

I watched the entire season in a day, and yes I was hungover. However, it kept my attention the whole time and I got quite invested. The story - a flood devastates a small, country town in rural Australia and 5 people died. A glowing flower grows where they died and when eaten it makes you young. The storyline is driven forward tackling multiple themes and is both original and engrossing. The Acting - Superb! Every character is rounded, fleshed out and totally believable in their roles. The Production - Beautifully shot, a definite Aussie bush feel, a finely crafted production. Enjoyment - I was fully engaged the whole time. Rewatch/Recommend - I would not watch it again as it is at times quite heavy and dark yet I will recommend it. All in all, a stand out Australian production.
