    1. Yes, have really enjoyed RFDS. Hope to see another season at least.
      Excellent cast and absolutely stunning scenery and cinematography. Stephen Peacocke is once again a standout, as he is in The Newsreader.
      Refreshing also to see that it’s not your average cookie cutter Aus drama with predictable happy endings and everything neatly resolved by the end of each episode.
      Much more realistic.

    2. Great show, and finale was really well done. Agree too dealt with issues not usually seen in most local dramas as well.
      Hopefully catch-up viewers lift numbers and international sales help it get to a second series.

  1. I think Making It is really for a niche audience. Some viewers may have watched the first episode to see what it all about, but turned off when they saw it wasn’t their thing – and would not watch it again (hence the ratings drop on second outing). It’s a warm and fuzzy show with not much put downs or drama as say The Block, but it’s reach and attention span is probably only limited.

  2. Making It not as much of a flop as Seven’s Ultimate Tag earlier this year, but well on its way to that territory unfortunately. I was going to give it a go, but then saw the low ratings for it last week, and that put me off.
