Yah-boo to hexa-2
1 November 2005 | by peterws-1See all my reviews

Initially I wondered how good a series must be to earn the approval of hexa-2. Then I realised that such erudite comments as "Ho Hum" meant that mindless American action fare is probably more to his (or her) taste. As for me, fine characterisations, excellent acting and thought-provoking stories have all come together in this superb package.

However, hexa-2 should be happy because the ABC, as part of its inexorable dumbing-down process in the chase for meaningless ratings has declined to commission a third series.

And the viewers who did bother to watch are the poorer.
