I've been watching, and am on episode 4 at the moment.

It's a good series. Marta Dusseldorp is very watchable. Her character is strong and she has a presence.

Am liking the setting, very picturesque.

Yes it would be ideal for Sunday evening on Channel 5, they have got Wentworth too, so with H&A and Neighbours they'd have a good Australian slot.

This really is a little gem of a show. A bit predictable at times, but today's twist (if true) came out of the blue. And wow what a slap, truly deserved.

Personally I prefer Marta Dusseldorp, but I can appreciate he has aged well.

This series just gets better and better.

So much happened this week, lots of twists and turns. The characters are so watchable.

So many good Australian shows never make it to the UK. Fingers crossed this one does.

Season 2 has just started. Looking forward to see it again. It is such a fresh drama.

Tried this show last week, and I couldn't get into it. Main reason was the atrocious acting and predictable plots. It's like an australian version of every primetime soapy drama ever made in the US. They made the acting in Neighbors and Home and away look like oscar winners compared to this.

That's impossible, because season 3 hasn't been given a go ahead and there is a rumor the show has been axed.

They obviously mean series 2, unless they are talking about a completely different show.

The week before last was a double episode, there was no episode this week and next week is a double episode to finish the series.

Sadly it looks like no series 3.

I was really liking it.

It has officially been axed

It's a shame as it sounded quite good. The soapiness that people were complaining about is down to the fact that the creator says he was inspired by the Douglas Sirk films of the 50's which in turn inspired the likes of Dynasty and Dallas. Also, the creator is Bevan Lee who's written for loads of Aussie soaps including the most melodramatic of them all, Sons and Daughters.

As someone said, a lot of good Aussie dramas never make it over here which is unfortunate. Most of the ones I really loved like The Secret Life of Us and Adrenalin Junkies were screened in the middle of the night here in Ireland but it was better than nothing.

Only one episode this week, the last episode is next week.

I'll miss this show, the setting and characters are a joy to watch.

That was a good episode to end on. Such a shame there isn't going to be another series.

This sucks I never thought the series will end this way. Elizabeth Bligh leaving the Ash Park. I thought Sarah and George would stay together in the end, and Sarah husband will die eventually. Loved this show, too bad it has been axed.

I suspect that's the way it would have ended if they had been able to carry on.
