Hands up who saw Packed To The Rafters after reading my blog last week? No one? All of you? A few weeks ago, we delved into the topic of the ratio of American shows to shows produced internationally, inclusive of my homeland Australia, and we discussed about what makes a great show, and whether country of origin plays a factor. As I mentioned before, the decision is up the it’s up to the consumer and the avid TV watcher to know if their show is good, regardless of where it was filmed and set; and it’s my job as a reviewer and an informer of shows just to state the facts, give my opinion, hopefully as unbiased as can be, and let you all make up your minds.

Even if you don’t love soccer, even if you don’t love spy shows, even if you don’t like soccer and spy shows in the same show, I would say to still watch the show, as it is the characters and their growth and development throughout the past season that has been the shining light for me, and the predominant reason why I will watch season 2.
