After taking up residency in Canberra as a senator in federal parliament, Cleaver has old foes and new. A terrorist gas attack on Parliament House causes the seat of government to move down the hill to its old home.
Cleaver Greene is now a Senator and though his new position with more responsibilities and power, allow him an opportunity to make a difference, his habits from days gone past are hard to overcome. As the Senator reacts to his noisy neighbors in his special Cleaver like way, he adds new enemies to the already long list of haters. At supper with pregnant Missy, the Doc, and Nicole, an old foe lead him to question his platform to do nothing, and makes him want to make a positive difference. But his new found desire to make the world a better place, gets sidetracked by a visit from the Secretary of State from the US and the request to "party like it's 1999!"
Simply does not have the right feel, it all seems rushed and poorly scripted.
Performances are sub standard even though Richard Roxburgh is clearly trying to stay true to his character as Clever Greene but he seems to be the only one.
A flurry of Aussie actors with hopeless yank accents only adds to the woes of the lazy script. Episode 2 is actually worse, shame ABC!
