I just caught all 3 series of this show on Netflix. How have I not seen it before? The ensemble cast is amazing, both the well known actors and also all the kids. Each character was well created and coherent through 22 episodes. One reviewer said they found all the characters unlikeable, that wasn't my experience at all.
The first series had a dark edge, driven by Ben Mendelsohn's character. That darkness disappeared in series 2 and most of series 3. I was worried it might lose its edge, but the 'tangle'of characters kept it tight and completely engaging. I assume they were planning another series, but the sudden ending wouldn't stop me from watching and thoroughly enjoying the whole complicated ride.
Great Aussie drama, well worth watching.
