A wonderful Aussie/Greek drama adaped from an equally well written book which I read when it first came out.
Christos probably never imagined a TV drama would come out and the effect it would have on many people, maybe
changing their way of child-rearing forever. The Skippy chaacter was the least likable and I felt the language Rosa
used in front of her "breast-fed beyond his years son" was just as out of order as Harry slapping the kid.
The Greeks love sex and it is usually not uncommon for them to have mistresses although they make great family
men and fathers - acceptable in this day and age, or not, that is how it is. Looking forward to Disc 2.
How a minor slap on a child can change so many lives. Well written, it's amazing how you change your opinions often during the course of events. Strong sex scenes and lanuage, so not for children. Excellent story quality acting so far as each character (good and bad ) develops strongly indicating their view (some disjointed) of what happened. Looking forward to disc 2.
Loving this series. The depiction of greek family life is SPOT ON.
Another great Aussie drama - raises some interesting questions! Enjoying this series
loved this show great drama
Absolutely loved this series. With each episode, you changed your opinions of each of the characters. A good reminder that everyone has a dark side.
Waiting now on the 3rd disc and then I'm going to read the book! Brilliant Aussie drama, great characterisation and really well-cast. Fantastic premise for a story, full kudos to Christos Tsiolkas for his story-telling pivoting around this seemingly small event. Love how the points of view shift around with each chapter. Just be aware there are lots of sex scenes which are quite graphic and Tsiolkas likes to demonstrate his knowledge of the many and varied ways there are to have sex! Definitely not one for the kids.
I didn't like the first disc but continued to watch second disc because of the other good reviews. Half way through the second disc the series improved and by the end I was quite enjoying it.
Very true to the book. I am enjoying seeing this after having read the book.
This is probably one of the best television series I have ever seen. Fascinating characters and situations that feel very true to life - especially if you live in Melbourne like I do. My only criticism was that the sex scenes were way too graphic and quite unnecessary (I understand the novel on which it is based is quite graphic too). I don't need to see everything in detail to realise that the characters are having it off!
Loved it - can hardly wait to see Disc 3 - great Australian drama & great acting
Loved it......its interesting to see everyone that's involved point of view, can't wait to see how it ends
This series will test the way you thought you would react to a situation. another great Australian drama.
