| "I never knew marriage could be so lonely!"
Only one other review apart from this one? I'm not Australian so I don't have any idea if this was a popular program or not, but one review? And he called it '...melodrama - from a cheap paperback!"

The story may be somewhat of a 'melodrama' but the characters downplay the theatrics so it's easy to watch. There are a couple of moments where you slap your forehead and think 'No, no, no, don't do that!'. but for the most part it's plausible.

There are six main characters and each episode focuses on one of them until the end where things are tied up neatly.

First up is alpha male Joe. His son mysteriously disappears from school when he goes to pick him up. Next is Alex who is a shrink with his own issues as his marriage falls apart. Angela is next... the hooker with a heart. Mitch follows as the hapless every-man always playing second fiddle to the star, Joe. Lawyer Gina hits the forefront in episode five and Joe's wife, Anna, ties up the whole kit and caboodle as truths and motives are spelled out for the viewer.

This character-driven story-telling device works well and the drama unfolds neatly. The numerous time-jumps make sense and are easy to follow. Despite the episodes being long, there is (thankfully) very little time wasted. The pace is brisk without being rushed. There are no extended scenes or significant events overly dwelt on.

Over 400 people have 'rated' this series and the average rating is just under 8, which is about right. The story has enough threads to keep it interesting and is never bogged down by extraneous characters or scenes that lead nowhere.

It took me two full episodes to get hooked. But that was mainly because I had read the other review which I shouldn't have done! It's misleading and I suspect that the reviewer didn't watch the entire six hours.

I enjoyed it.
