I thought of it too. The song was something about an angel?

So they’ve done the dump on iview? I like it when they do that. My Pvr had a tanty, so I will catch up on iview later. Nice to hear it’s good, thanks.

Not sure about this yet, I thought some of the script and acting felt forced but they might settle in with time, will give it a bit longer.  I did think it very unbelievable that there was so little consequence to a parent abandoning their baby.

I was the same Nozycat.  Hold safety surely aren’t coming in and saying let’s get you with the baby!

The acting was also pretty average - particularly Sabine and Mish felt forced.

I've loved it.  FInished it last night.

Yes, the baby story was really just part of the plot setting, and some of the acting is a little bit stilted, but I do love what they have achieved - a story that shows the diversity of an Australian suburb.  Nationalities, disability, addiction, normal every day parenting battles......

I thought it was easygoing entertainment that kept me engaged.  I hope it gets a second series.

It's also great for young australian actors to get an ongoing tv  opportunity for something that isn't Neighbours or Home and Away.

It feels very E-Sreet to me but more reflective of our actual cities.

I saw all 16 (although I think in total there will be 32) last weekend,

I think looking back I liked individual characters and the way the actors portrayed them but I did not notice any rapport between the couples or ex couples in Pav's case as well

I am liked Sabine and Misch as people/characters but their friendship came over a bit false I think.

Sabine is my fave so far!

#20 Ruf~Feral~es

Posted 01 March 2019 - 02:08 PM

Ooh, I hope there are 32.  I was disappointed to finish it.

I loved the show overall and the main thing I loved was it was based around a tower block but it was people of different backgrounds mixing like people do in real life. I watch mainly British tv and it seems a lot of 'posh' or 'council estate' type set ups but not as much interaction between the 'classes' as such

also I watched it all on Iview but I noticed ABC is showing them 2 at a time, so why did they not just make them 1 hour length episodes?

You say that like it’s a bad thing.

Tried last week, but there were trees less wooden than some of the actors. Very uneven, and don’t think I’ll go back....

I think it’s a cross between e street and heartbreak high and possibly something else. Maybe Coronation street?  Definitely has a soapie feel.

Did anyone know it’s back? I just turned in the TV Guide and noticed two episodes tonight and when I read the information it didn’t sound familiar.

Went to iview and found out there are more episodes. They had a mid-season break and then continued, there are another 8 episodes online (maybe 10).
