Forgotten but brilliant
This Aussie series, taking us back to pioneering Australia, was enigmatic but hugely watchable at the time (1975). A three-man (If you can call it that with 'Jessica' among the number) team of bandits manage to elude the sadistic local cop, Keogh all the time. Short-lived, it had good stories and plenty of pace, plus the atmospheric outback used to its full untamed potential of the period. We in our household used to hold on for it at the end of the week, It was very enjoyable and strange it had a gruff American star, Gus Mercurio. Always on a Sunday (Never say 'never' on a Sunday, lol!) Shame not any Australians have commented on it here, I would've thought an older head may well have come by - hope it's out on DVD one day but I've yet to see it anywhere.
