Underrated
4 December 2002 | by nconrauSee all my reviews

Great 'aussie cop show' that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. It's a lot better than most of the cop shows that seem to be infesting Australian TV right now, such as White Collar Blue, which has the same kind of basis - 2 guy detectives and 2 girl detectives partnered up (not as good as Young Lions). The acting is pretty good, especially from Alex Dimitriades and Tom Long. It probably won't continue for a second series because of bad treatment from the network it's on - if given a chance in an earlier time slot instead of being shoved to 10.30 after 2 weeks it may have been more popular.
