Average series!

Very well done fast paced series. Highly recommended.

Was refreshing to have Janet be happily “married” lesbian character in series one. Unfortunately, writers just can’t let that be so they killed off her wife. (Not a spoiler).
Janet’s pain is palpable and tends to make her a bit of an ice queen.

But the storylines are varied and interesting to view from another country’s perspective.
Can you imagine anyone seriously doing anything about gun crime in the USA?
At least Aussies are trying.

This is an excellent series.

Australia continues to entertain as well as to explain.

I agree with Ranger below.

Riveting and intense, intricately woven second season of the series. Expect the unexpected.

Some good tense moments, some scenes stretched. Interesting ethical questions about embryo ownership. Good acting. It was enjoyable.

Very entertaining series from Down Under. Lots of mystery, courtroom drama, and finely drawn characters, fleshed out more than in series 1. Marta Dusseldorp carries the day in almost every scene, and what I liked that there's nuance to her character. The rest of the acting can be a bit uneven, and the pace is slower than we're used to, but well worth your patience.

The first season was good, but the second is a snoozer. Lots of pointless scenes padding out a two hour plot to make it last for a season. Lots of slow, repetitive shots of characters silently emoting to pile on the melodrama. All in all, a disappointing follow-up to a promising first series.

Enjoyed series 1 much better. Series 2 tried too hard and it was a lot slower than series 1. Might have been better if shortened to 6 episodes to keep tempo up! I was getting tired of how many times they replayed flash backs as well.

This is a slow moving series - wait, this is a good thing. It allows for character development especially for the lead role and gives us a far more developed insight into police procedures and how certain courts work. The setting for the show is Sydney, Australia and for those of us who can't travel down under we also get a glimpse of contemporary Aussie fashion styles and architectural designs. This is not a cookie-cutter police/crime drama; it's a first rate production. After seeing a few episodes I found it to be a very enjoyable way to spend a mindful evening.
