Clever and Funny
It is amusing to see most of the cast of "The Time of Our Lives" transposed to this clever series of short stories. Each episode features two couples who are dating for the first time. The themes are universal so, even though the stories are set in Australia, they will be appreciated everywhere in thew world. The actors include some of Australia's best and their performances are generally excellent - natural and engaging. Each episode asks a different question about dating, questions similar to those found in "agony Aunt" columns of women's magazines. Some stories come off better than others. I found the first episode the most surprising and very raunchy but the outcome (not to be spoiled here) was hilarious. Other stories were perhaps a little less successful and a couple of actors were a bit wooden. Still, there is plenty to enjoy in this series.
