Wanted to enjoy, but not...
15 April 2016 | by calmbecalmSee all my reviews

Hello, I wanted to enjoy this series. I have been to Australia to visit family and I enjoy good dramas. This show just started a few weeks ago on my public t.v. station. I am bored after 5 episodes, well I was bored after two, but stuck it out. I find the main character Sarah is rather wooden (somewhat like DA's Lady Mary Crawley). Sarah's character seems to me be very self-righteous and annoying. So many other characters seem to be written to fill stereotypes. I have Jewish friends, so understand the importance of the Day of Atonement. So, when Sarah apologizes to the busybody as part of her personal rites of purification it still seems as if Sarah was not contrite at all, just needing to make a point. I did appreciate the way that Olivia told off her mother-in-law after she finally figured out what was going on with James.

yours,
