A very good legal/police drama from Australia. Only drawbacks were the length of the series (which drug on a bit too long) and the focus on same sex relationship with kids, which was nor really relevant nor necessary for the story....probably widened the appeal to a larger audience.

Suspenseful drama, featuring a senior prosecutor trying to balance work and family under a heavy case load. Sounds like real life for so many women!

The series kept my attention and I stayed with it to its conclusion. Only one beef - why do so many of these suspense/legal/crime series' insist on the lead having lovers, children, or any sort of domestic responsibilities when clearly it plays a distant second-fiddle to their career? Seems someone wants to have it both ways. These "faux" relationships are not necessary as is evident with Morse et al. Alas.

So far, I have watched Series 1 and 3. Both are well written and the story lines are complex in a good way. Not complex in the sense that the viewer can't figure out "who did it," but complex in the sense that the plot unravels as it would in a real-life situation.

I do not like the lead character, Janet King. I don't think the character is meant to be liked. The character will do whatever it takes to get her way. Her character has to be "right" all the time.

It is a good series, and I would recommend watching it.

A great series to discover. Watch it "en rafale" as when one episode is over, you want to watch the next one.

This is a terrific suspenseful drama with excellent acting, especially the main character played by Marta Dusseldorp. When PBS dropped the ending episode, I actually bought the dvd to see it. Now the Marin library will have 2 copies of series 1 when I’m through and I’ve already reserved series 2!

Loved that the main character is gay and in a “married” relationship with kids.
