I stumbled upon this show on TV last holiday and I am so glad! Being 20-somethinng who still has a lot to figure out how life works, almost every character is relate-able for me. Josh with his uncertainty towards every decision he makes, Tom with his awkwardness, even Josh's mum dealing with meltdown after meltdowns also her friends she encounters soon.
One of the criteria(not always) of a good show for me is there is not a single character I hate, even characters that many ppl irritated with in this board (which I can see why), I could totally understand their behavior.
The best episode for me is when there is only 2 characters in the entire episode, Josh and his mum go hiking while engaging in heart-to-heart conversation. Everything about it is just so soothing, exhilarating, plus the beautiful Australian woods/forest/swamp (honestly idk what it's called) successfully made me cried with tears of joy and sadness half end throughout the episode.
If you're looking for meaningful yet light-heart show especially if you're 20-something and depressed, this show is an ABSOLUTE MUST-WATCH!
