Underrated Australian prison/romance drama that made us first fall in love with Hugh.
I watched this tv series when it first came out on good old ABC and found it addictive to watch. This is the show that the now world famous Jackman met his wife while making and the sexual tension between them (in the few scenes they actually had together) makes the scenes in the Sopranos between Tony Soprano and his psychiatrist look like a bad soap opera.
It's not just a romance though, although it was talked up as one when it first came out, it's mainly about prison life and Hugh Jackman's character dealing with being in jail and being in love with his screw.
There's a few strange cameos from other actors mostly only Australians would recognise and all in all it was a brilliant series with an appropriately heart wrenching ending.
