  1. I could told you that Amazing Grace would win the timeslot . It’s a new show and people would be curious about it . However I can’t stand [Edit: Kate Jenkinson] and her acting . She’s bad in Wentworth and she hasn’t improved .

  2. I only watched Amazing Grace to see Alex Dimitriades who wasn’t in the episode. Agree with the review on this site that the soundtrack was quite out of place. I definitely don’t think I am the demographic for this show, so most likely will not return.

    1. I actually thought of your comment when I saw the numbers ! Seems to me that the TV powers that be should pay more attention to the comments posted on here. A lot of knowledgeable people.

  3. Pembrokeshire and Amazing Grace were both very good, watched AG on broadcast and then caught-up on Pem on 7Plus (didn’t realise two eps had already aired though?) Top work by producers on both. I’d had Pembroke recommended to me beforehand also.
