.. there's good.. very good.. and thank goodness..
There's many shows try and make this formula work (comedy-crime-drama).. but it is really so..so hard to do well. For multiple reasons, this series is as good as it truly gets.. and the main cause is Geraldine Hakewill. She is the straw that subtly stirs the whole drink. I was led to this production by following the work of Rebecca Gibney (who's also fabulous in this series..as is the entire cast). And that's what good actors and their work are all about.. just keep following their efforts, and more times than not you will be justly rewarded. Few are anywhere near as good as this production.. let's all just keep hoping they continue on from here. By nature of the story-line this one could continue, but oh what a great ride it was for the time we were privileged to be viewing should it be decided to be the end.
