Love Child proves to be a success for Australia.
I think Australian television has finally figured out what it does best. Whenever they try to create a modern show it comes off looking cheap and outdated but their past few attempts at reverting back to the 60's/70's has been really successful. They have done a great job with the costumes, sets and everything 60's related so that it feels real.
Love Child is actually an exceptional TV show. The premise is gritty and delves into a subject matter that would still affect women in Australia today. It is incredibly hard to imagine that not long ago the world was like this. It enforces that people of power and wealth had the control while others were forced to fall in line.
This show may be too raw for some viewers but I believe the general public will enjoy Love Child for what it is. It's a new story that hasn't been explored in detail yet and in a way many people are still affected by this issue, if only to a lesser extent. Whether you personally went through this, was the parent, or the child or you just knew someone who experienced this everyone has their own experience. So yes I do recommend you watch it as it really is very good. 8.5/10
