Ruined by "edgy" cinematography
This Australian comedy is well-written and superbly acted, however I had to quit watching it during the second episode. The constantly shifting camera focus hurt my eyes and made me dizzy. This "cool" effect did nothing for this production, in fact all it did was distract the viewer from the excellent work done by the actors and writers. What a shame!

love this show, the shakey camera work evently goes away which is season 1's one drawback
Love this show so much, it just kept getting better from season to season, sad there is only 3. Season 1 there was some shakey camera work which I didn't like but the story and acting made me over look it and by season 2 it was gone, so definitely recommend you stick with it if you're just starting the series.

Worst camera work ever
Interesting story and acting but the jerky camera work actually made me queasy. Where was the director and editor?

Laugh out loud, for adults.
My husband and I live in the states, and we love the show. We promised we'd watch it together! I think there is an american version but nothing as funny as this!
