  1. Hmmmm didn’t think much of it, I feel it had potential, bit just never got there. To be honest I felt like I was watching a more serious version of welcome to whoop whoop

    • Agree with Chuck…… the concept of a 10 pound pom in the outback was hard to understand 20 years after it was made ……. so i didn’t really enjoy the movie, but we travelled a lot so the outback held little mystery for me. I really didn’t see it working in 2017, with mobile phones and internet.

  2. I just can’t understand why that series flopped in the ratings. It should have been a smash hit like the Kennedy/Miller miniseries on TEN in the 1980s were.
