fantastic show for everyone
16 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

for some odd reason this show seems to have attracted a very low score on IMDb...perhaps it reflects a generation raised on garbage television such as big brother.

As a 20 year old, I am hardly in the key demographic for this show...yet, having purchased and watched the DVD boxed set, I find it charming... it is quite possibly the best Australian made show in years, it's a remarkably well acted dramedy focusing on a year in the life of thirteen year old lockie Leonard, and his family, in what could best be described as a coming of age series in the vein of 'the wonder years', 'degrassi' and 'freaks and geeks' though not quite reaching the heights of that latter masterpiece. It also, thankfully, lacks the 'life lesson of the week' feel that degrassi, though also an entertaining show, often can't quite conceal.

the scripts are consistently funny, and entertaining, and the production values are solid... It is an appalling tragedy that this series only lasted one season, though from all I've been able to discover, it was never intended to run longer...so it's not an issue of cancellation.

I'm not going to delve to deeply into plot points, since this show deserves to be watched with no prior spoilers... but it suffices to say that this is a quirky dramatic comedy which doesn't dumb itself down for it's intended younger audience and isn't afraid to tackle difficult issues, thus making it an entertaining viewing experience for all ages.
