Banished

Season 1
 (435)IMDb 7.42015X-RayTV-MA
In 1787 Britain banished its unwanted citizens to Sydney, Australia. They found it to be so hot, barren and hostile that very few Englishmen wanted to set foot there. Yet these rejects, overseen by a small number of British officers and marines were expected to establish a colony. In spite of famine, drought, escapes, hangings and floggings, a group of misfit characters established a new society.
