very disappointed this show canceled after 3 series
I was very disappointed and surprised to hear "Satisfaction" had been canceled after only 3 seasons. I have to be honest, till recent years I have not been a fan of Australian TV series. However, shows like this and "Love My Way" and "Spirited" have changed my mind and made me take a second look at Australia drama.
"Satisfaction" could have continued for at least another 2 seasons. Stories were left untold. The writing was good and it had an excellent ensemble. I found myself very involved with the various characters and as another reviewer stated --- at last a show in which sex workers are not presented as one dimensional.
It's good to see series like "Satisfaction" and "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" and others showing sex workers in a much more realistic light. Sex workers are usually wrongly portrayed as down and out, amoral junkies. This is a complete myth and is also born from misogyny. Personally I have a number of friends who are sex workers and they are some of the most caring, open-minded and non-judgmental people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. They've shared many stories about their lives and their experiences and a great deal of their work involves compassion, kindness and acceptance. I hope at least in this short run of "Satisfaction" it will help change the public's mind about the negative stereotypes portrayed until now.
