I watched nearly one episode of Wild Boys and found it to be a western set in Australia with nothing new , same faces same exageration, handsome bandids good looking woman , but , NOTHING NEW!

Any wonder it got chopped, no producers seem to have any imagination or
good ideas these days, every thing is the same or a repeat idea, how many American cop shows and lawyer shows can we put up with.

Shows like Tangle and Off Spring and the Slap you have to search around for
hardly any advertising or promotion for good quality.
But the crap is everywhere,

Even the movies make remake after remake, wheres the new stuff.

Hardly any advertising for Offspring?

You couldn't get away from their advertising blitz in 2010, months before the show had aired. Was pretty decently promoted in 2011 as well.

That being said I never watch Wild Boys, didn't look at all good. Not surprised it got cut

I never saw an episode but from the promos I thought it just looked like colonial Packed to the Rafters.

Channel 7 never takes a chance with their dramas. They hit on a winning formula in Packed to the Rafters and now seem very reluctant to deviate from it. From what I've read, the guy who created Rafters has been commissioned to make another drama for 7. As if Winners and Losers (aka Packed to the Rafters for single, young females) wasn't enough.

As soon as I saw it was on at 7:30 in a PG slot and starred Dan McPherson with a manicured beard, I quite rightly stayed well away...

Am I the only one who thinks a drama set in colonial Australia chronicling our bushranger history has serious promise (on the ABC)? Or is it just because I've started watching Deadwood?

Yeh but it would have to be really violent for it to be good. They had a great movie on SBS on Saturday night called Van Diemen's Land about that cannibal Tassie escaped convict Alexander Pearce - the Huon Valley looked incredibly haunting and scarey

Some kind of Deadwood+The Proposition amalgamation would be epic. Would need to be at a very late timeslot though so as not to offend Australian sensibilities.

To THRILLHO, I also got into Deadwood recently. Almost finished Season 2 and it's depressing to realise there's only 1 more season left. As a huge Western fan I'm bewildered at how long it took me to find it :eek:

Thats a true story.

Wild boys wasn't that great saw the first episode didn't really struck me as a show to keep watching.
