Storyline

A comedy about the working lives of plainclothes detectives Red Lilywhite and Lou Knutt who work in an outer suburban police station in Sydney. Keeping the peace on the streets and always a piece of the action for themselves, Red and Lou are completely uninterested in actually solving crimes. Their relationships with criminals and other members of the general public serve only to benefit themselves. In the face of new style policing, internal affairs enquiries and corruption commissions, they are the fat blue line. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy

more Aussie crap
14 May 2007 | by garbage_headSee all my reviews

This show sums up everything that is wrong with Australian TV shows and movies. They Fair Dinkum suck mate! from the cheap and nasty opening titles to the cringeworthy "aussie" slang that peppers the dialog this poorly made show reeks of low budget. Unfortunately every TV show in Australia is the same: hammy over acting, shoddy directing, cliché ridden self conscious scripts and the same actors in every program, like there are only 15 actors in the whole country. I guess the reason this "black comedy" was never picked up for a second series is that it's decidedly unfunny. Maybe what they needed was a laugh track. Then again I don't think that would have helped at all. There is not one laugh out loud moment to be found amongst this dog's breakfast of a show. Not only that but the actors really don't look the part, let alone play the part. More embarrassing, cringeworthy sludge that shows why we only make reality shows now.
