Living in the late 60's in the yet-to-be-the-now-oh-so-trendy harbourside suburb of Balmain
Yes, I think it was one of the best written Aussie comedies. Great dialogue with sharp humour.
John Meillon was the typical Aussie Bloke - his casual wear ( stubbies?), language and manners personified the stereotype Aussie male.
Gordon Chater was brilliant with his some of mannerism - particularly when he poked his tongue out. I can still visualise the scene even after all these years.
I particularly liked the opening scene and theme song with McGooley fishing of Balmain Wharf ( I think there was a sign saying " Fishing from wharf is prohibited" )
Does anyone know how I can buy a DVD or VHS of the series - even a couple of episodes would do.
Can you help?
