...BRAVO Australia!
30 April 2014 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

For shows this damn good the seasons just come to an end WAY too quickly. From the very first episode you're hooked, and streaming them is a pita cause you can't stop watching 'em. It becomes a marathon, and you only must stop cause you're seriously cutting into your zzz-time. Haven't looked it up yet, but I truly do hope this one stays around.. I know I could see myself enjoying it for a minimum of a handful of seasons...(but did read somewhere that more than likely three will be the last). There are so many outstanding performances, just select most any name, but just to single out one, and although she only appeared ever so briefly, Toni Collette shows in such an absurdly brief time how magnificent an actor she truly is, her range of character is just incredible. BRAVO Australia!!.. for such an outstanding production. Not all seasons are equal.. the third weaker than the the first two (prison doing a lot of the damage). Still pretty good overall, and had they allotted more air time to Adrienne Pickering .. bit.ly/1dvp5g5 .. (and TC), it could've been that much better. PS.. and I'm absolutely clueless why the US counterpart on Fox was ever produced and aired at all.. it is atrocious.
