A better sampling of an Australian TV series, some of the Aussie productions available in the US tend to be hard to follow - due to the variation between being an Aussie and a Yank.

I was surprised how much prominent American music of the 40's and early 50's was featured.

It seem to be a good representation of the post WWII atmosphere that Australia [and the world] was going through.

Hopefully, season two will not disappoint.

Just complete season one. Interesting story line(s) with multiple characters dealing with a multitude of issues. The morays of the 1950's are clearly present, far different from todays. The cast does a commendable job and the settings are fantastic rather than so many of these series where there is endless dialogue shot in a single room. I highly recommend it.

A 50's period drama not without humor and much conundrum! Characters are well developed. Each character has endearing qualities or strengths to empathize with...even the utterly nasty.

I loved this series after only a few episodes, looking forward to more seasons. Marta Dusseldorp does a great job as Sarah Adams. Great story, cast and cinematography.

A fantastic period drama on par with Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife. Love it.
