80s nostalgia
I loved this show when I was young and was overjoyed when I heard that the first series was being released on DVD. It did not disappoint and is well worth picking up. Tamara (Nadine Garner) and Steve (Paul Smith) Henderson are two high school kids from Richmond (Vic) who have to move to a small town called Haven Bay to live with their 'copper' uncle (Nicholas Eadie) after their mother (Dianne Craig) dies.

There they find it hard to fit in with the local kids (Ben Mendelsohn and Kylie Minogue among them)and uncover a plot by the local entrepreneur which has more to do with them than they realise.

Energetic Garner dominates every scene she's in. It's rare to have such an intelligent young teenager as Tamara Henderson on screen... ever! It's fun watching the rest of the cast too. Most of whom have worked in many other Australian television shows both before and after this production.

The opening shots of red and white roller skates are merely an introduction to this authentic snapshot of 1985. 576 minutes.
