I almost made it to the end of season 2, but gave up. I watched Westside first and loved that. So I was excited to learn that a prequel existed. It was a let down, though.
I don't know if it gets better after season 2, but there isn't a single believable character in the show - or plot line for that matter. The main character (not the actress, but the character) is straight up annoying. I found myself cheering against her. The chemistry between Cheryl and Wayne? Ugh. Did anyone really buy into that? The twin brothers, more specifically Van, was just too much. Pascalle was a good contrast to Loretta, but was written as too silly a caricature.
The most redeeming qualities about the show were Antonia Prebble and Grant Bowler.
