Riches to rags story
10 November 2019 | by leoalexanderscottSee all my reviews

Frayed has become one of my favourite weekly Australian comical-style series. There is something about this well written drama yet satire of early Eighties life in Australia that gets you hook. The family, their friends, the era, the political and social climate, the fashion and icons of the era. You can start watching from any episode. All you need to know about the "riches to rags" story is that Sammy Cooper brings her two children to live with her mother and brother in the beachside mansion of the northern Sydney suburb of Newscastle, while waiting for the settlement of a will when her husband suddenly dies from a heart attack during fitness training. Except that Newcastle isn't a suburb, the mansion is just a small old beach home, the suspicious brother suspects Sammy being up to no good, and she is forced to become a secretary for local bribe-influenced member of parliament. Did I mention that meanwhile back in UK, she getting her estate screwed over, getting taken advantage of because her husband died after a brick mobile was shoved up the backside by a prostitute.
