L.O.V.E.
Bouncing my way through the whole show on my mini-trampoline. Downloaded the lyrics to the signature song so I can sing along while bouncing. Such a fun show, with endearing characters (even the creeps, -- well, almost), a mind-boggling body double acting tour de force by Antony Starr, and an abundant offering of over 100 episodes, with dessert consisting of the spin-off "Westside" with the evil Loretta (looking forward to that one).
Funny like no other show. Looove the accent.

A crime family with morals, integrity, and a heart of gold
I love this show! Even though it's 10+ years old, it's still very current. Sometimes the New Zealand slang is a bit hard to understand, but I always keep the captions on and it helps. It's very easy to become invested in every character in the series, they all seem so real. I've only been watching for one week and I'm already on the third season. It's a very engrossing program, one I didn't expect to enjoy as much as I do, but what a surprise.

One of the best series ever! Adults only.
I saw this a few years ago on Netflix and I was devastated when it was over. It's hard to purchase as available DVDs don't play on American players. Made in New Zealand, The West family and friends are unforgettable characters, a crime family that the mother, Cheryl West, is determined to see go straight. I love each and every one of these characters and this is one of the best series I've ever watched. Choice!

It's back on U.S. programming.
It's an excellent series, funny as hell tv show from New Zealand. The Van and Munter fish are back. Watch it, you won't be disappointed. I originally watched it on Netflix many years ago, but after it was taken out of the lineup, I couldn't find a place to watch it anywhere here in the U.S.. Amazon you did good.

Absolutely hilarious. Deeply drawn, complex characters
Absolutely hilarious. Deeply drawn, complex characters, awesome acting, hilarious endocrinologist storylines. Awesome entertainment. One of my favorites. And I've watched far more than my share.

Oedipal Fantasy
The show depicts an oedipal fantasy, a fairy God mother who mothers her adult boys like babies and a has-been grandfather in the rise of adolescent females who degrade men. One more reason to cancel your Amazon subscription.

So freaking good
This show is amazing! It's so well written and clever,. I watched it for the first time 14 years after it's initial debut and have watched the entire series twice!
"Best Bag Ever!"!!

Worth the time and you learn some new words
I have been nothing but impressed with the writing in this show. The acting is awesome. The music is sometimes silly but overall enjoyable.
