It's a bit more ;) ... comparing it to the Australian version of the series.
28 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

So i remember watching the Australian version of the show in 2011 and it was fine then ,, this US version though has got a more regularity and the story is a bit more organized.

8 episodes with the same titles as the original and it would seem the same but unlike the US version the Australian just gave a whole story about each character with missing the connections or sometimes with no sense at all ,, seems like after 4 years they'v become more experienced .

Anyway,, so the Idea of a child slapping and in my perspective a child spoiling and in between that there's a whole relationships drama is really well put and nice to be brought up on TV like this.

The story of the slap ended fast in the Australian version i think in the 5th or 4th episode so here its like they're trying to be more thorough and built up a whole season on the trial and the slap story and i think one more season will bring up the other stories that have been mentioned in the AU version.

The cast is good,, i really liked casting Zachary Quinto he's awesome and they also brought Melissa George as "Rosie" and funny she was also in the Aus version as rosie so here she made it even better ;)

Overall the story is nice,, the plot is complex somehow many ideas branches out of it ,, i think it needs more than 8 episode but if it would be really the same story i know i think probably a second season should wrap it up perfectly unless they change something about the story of Richie to make it simpler... who knows ;)
