The series kept my attention and I stayed with it to its conclusion. Only one beef - why do so many of these suspense/legal/crime series' insist on the lead having lovers, children, or any sort of domestic responsibilities when clearly it plays a distant second-fiddle to their career? Seems someone wants to have it both ways. These "faux" relationships are not necessary as is evident with Morse et al. Alas.

So far, I have watched Series 1 and 3. Both are well written and the story lines are complex in a good way. Not complex in the sense that the viewer can't figure out "who did it," but complex in the sense that the plot unravels as it would in a real-life situation.

I do not like the lead character, Janet King. I don't think the character is meant to be liked. The character will do whatever it takes to get her way. Her character has to be "right" all the time.

It is a good series, and I would recommend watching it.

A great series to discover. Watch it "en rafale" as when one episode is over, you want to watch the next one.

This is a terrific suspenseful drama with excellent acting, especially the main character played by Marta Dusseldorp. When PBS dropped the ending episode, I actually bought the dvd to see it. Now the Marin library will have 2 copies of series 1 when I’m through and I’ve already reserved series 2!

Loved that the main character is gay and in a “married” relationship with kids.

I love absolutely LOVE this series! The smart scripts are full of twists, turns, and plenty of tension, without the extreme, graphic violence that standard in most series produced in the USA.

"A Place to Call Home" is much superior to Janet King, as is The Good Wife series. I gave up after 2 episodes of JK.
