That was brilliant from the original - and one of the great mysteries, was it Maggie Millar (who played Marie in the original), was it a dummy, was it a blow up dollMarie and the helicopter
Was a little more sophisticated than the original

The word going around is that the original ending to last night's episode (what was to be the series final) had a scene with Val Lehman, Fiona Spence and Collette Mann, but was cut on the retake.
Agree. When they were hinting at the possibility of the Freak still being alive last season, I said to my wife if she comes back then this show ends up turning into a Games of Thrones style fantasy series instead and I would not watch it anymore. Thought there was closure when they dug up the box and found "her" body.It’s full jump the shark material for me
Same! Up to episode 478...That was brilliant from the original - and one of the great mysteries, was it Maggie Millar (who played Marie in the original), was it a dummy, was it a blow up doll
Coincidentally I'm watching the original at the moment (aiming to watch the entire series within a year), and I'm pretty much up to the infamous helicopter episode.
Yep 1 of the best episodes ever, loved it. shows why this is the best Aussie drama I have seen.Hands down the best episode of the entire series, for mine
Clearly written originally as the finale for the series and it delivered everything
I was wondering last week why they had focused so much on Rita being in the holding cells, and then she turns out to be a major player in the events that unfolded.
Boomer and Liz was beautiful, the context that Boomer lost two mums, but Boomer's reaction to each, it was shock but more relief about her own mum, whereas Liz was genuine affection and grief. The scene earlier in the episode where Liz is mothering Boomer whilst her own mother was giving her s**t was quite poignant.
I reckon it gets better over the next couple of seasons then takes a dip...but hang in there because the season just gone is tip top.Skipped through to avoid spoilers, very late to the party as never really gave it a go.
Just finished season 1, really, really enjoyed it. Unlike a lot of prison shows it felt quite real and raw, it didn't seem too fake Hollywood.
Lot's of shows I have watched have strong 1st seasons and then it slowly goes downhill (see Game of Thrones as the marquee example). Am hoping this show stays just as good because I have a lot of seasons left.
