Creative AbundanceReviewed in the United States on January 23, 2019
5.0 out of 5 stars
Great show. Amazon please add extras from DVD set
Got hooked on show. Really liked Antony Starr in Banshee, so looked up other titles he was in.
He's young and plays twins in Outrageous Fortune. Such a fun comedy based in New Zealand.

FYI:
There was a problem with Season 5 Episode 5. Complaining about it in a review didn't help. Contacting Amazon through chat, on the other hand, resolved issue on Amazon's server in less than a day.

*** Previous 1 star review because couldn't stream an episode:
Spent last 2 days trying to get Season 5 Episode 5 to play on different devices with no luck.
Couldn't find a way to report a video issue as all help guides assume it's a user, connectivity, or device error.
Amazon please fix. Ready to cancel Amazon Prime out of frustration.

Love this series
Love the characters, they are both humorous and scary. The plot has some unique twists that are unexpected. Episode 5 of Season 5 doesn't load but you can skip it and go to six and move on from there.

Good show out of New Zealand
Great stories about a dysfunctional family that struggles with surviving capitalism by shady means. Binge worthy.
