Getting Better with Each Episode
23 June 2014 | by PerroristSee all my reviews

After watching the first two episodes I thought this might be just another tryhard that I'd soon give up on, but then the episodes began to get stronger, perhaps because of a throughline developing, and now I feel it has grown legs.

The interplay between the two main characters is working and the performances of the two young supporting actors, Hannah Mangan Lawrence and Mark Coles Smith, are convincing.

Well worth watching for a light-hearted drama piece from the same mould as New Tricks.

ABC drama has been getting much better in recent years. Let's hope the current government's austerity measures don't affect this side of the ABC's business.
