I accidentally came across this TV show browsing in the library. Once I watched episode 1,I was hooked. Compelling, addictive. It tackled really challenging issues; post WW2 PTSD trauma, class tensions, homosexuality, religious bigotry, anti-semitism and much more. A hint of Downtown Abbey, but much better in terms of tackling social issues.
I binge on Season 2, 3 & 4. Unfortunately, Season 5 has 50 + holds right now. So I'll have to be patient :) Its quality soap opera. Lots of drama. Great development of characters. Marta Dusseldorp and Noni Hazelhurst, playing two of the central characters, are mesmerizing to watch.
Rated 10/10. An excellent series that kept me engaged with every episode. Each main character has their own storyline. This is good quality drama!
The entire cast played their roles well. Bravo!
I'm looking forward to watching all the seasons. I did find out that it does end at Season 6, which will air in August 2018. So, I imagine the DVD will probably be available sometime in 2019.
What a breath of fresh air! Excellent series, very entertaining and surprising!!
Worth the effort to enjoy!!
Oh, this is so soppy, yet I watch it for lack of anything else I suppose. The realism is Australia '50's, anti-Semitism, no mention of Aborigines, stuck in the English class system, & fear of religions other than Anglican. Gee, pretty much like US & UK at that time. I've seen Marta D in a modern, very gritty series & what a difference in character portrayal. I do like her character.
A soap opera that telegraphs all its plot lines. Unsubtle and shallow characters. The best thing is the use of 50's music to make sardonic comments on the melodrama.
I really enjoyed the season, interesting and engaging storylines. I have a soft spot for Roy, I love his nickname for Sarah, calls her Missy - as in sassy one or to be cheeky. I enjoy this type of genre and plan on watching the complete series.
An excellent series which takes in class differences and conformity to the mores of society; anti-Semitism (but no mention of the aborigines); and the problem of homosexuality.
Addictive TV series,with a strong storyline,great acting,and characters who constantly draw you in.Surprises around every corner.Great for binge watching as you will never want to stop.
Character-propelled story line. Talented actors. The personal impact of WW II is compelling. Interesting to see the parallels between Australia and U.S. in this time period (post WW II). Well done. Finally some strong and interesting female characters!
Wonderful series. I am anxiously waiting for season 2. I particularly like how the character of Olivia becomes stronger and is able to stand up for what she believes. I would very much recommend this series.
