This is a wonderful series. I’ve watched 4 seasons now and can’t wait for season 5. It is so addicting and wonderfully acted. Beautiful setting as well.

A "Downtown Abby" type show that grows more interesting with each episode. Set in Australia just after WWII, the matriarch of one of the riches families is slowing loosing her iron-fisted grasp on her children and grandchildren. Her long absent daughter--banished for her liberal attitudes among other things, may be coming back at a most inconvenient time. Her widowed son is being pursued by his sister-in-law who cannot be as evil as she seems, be he is more interested in the new woman in town who is a survivor of Nazi death camps.

Beautifully shot, period costumes, exceptionally good acting. I highly recommend this series.

Oh my god, what a sleeper! Molasses runs faster than this thing. 590 minutes of TV that feels like 10,000 minutes!

Well acted, good plots and sub-plots. My husband reluctantly watched it with me and loved it. The period music, cars and fashions really add to the story. Lots of conflict created by the clash of class, gender identity, religion, ethnicity. My only quibble is that the Machiavellian Aunt Reggie is over-acted.
