A wonderful series based on a group of friends who attend a weekly trivia competition. Their lives, their loves, their dramas. The writers who wrote this series are the same writers who created Outrageous Fortune.

Like it came out of Hollywood
21 September 2011 | by studio-163-123247See all my reviews

This refreshing new comedy is superbly developed and written, with the expertise of Rachel Lang appearing as good as that of Richard Curtis or Justin Theroux. The cast consists of incredibly believable characters and true chemistry. Shane Cortese is a definite stand out, with his character incredibly likable and vastly different than the roles he has played in Shortland Street and Outrageous Fortune.

The rest of the cast, both starring and recurring are also very good, with the characters strong and well developed enough for the audience to understand and follow the story lines. The show overall is a definite winner and I hope to see it return for season two.
