Review

“Standing on the shoulders of giants” springs to mind while watching this Australian political conspiracy thriller. Though undeniably gripping, there are many stylistic nods to great shows – a bit of Sherlock, a smattering of The Killing – which prove distracting.

The plot revolves around how an accident involving two Aboriginal teens in the outback is linked to a government minister’s stage-managed fall from grace. When political hack Ned Banks (Dan Spielman) discovers a cryptic clue, his investigation leads him to a dark conspiracy and some thoroughly unpleasant men from the security services. While you try to figure out where the multi-stranded story is headed, enjoy the cinematography: the outback looks stunning.

Summary

New series. Australian political thriller set in the heart of national government, beginning as reporter Ned Banks is alerted to a strange accident involving a couple of Aboriginal teenagers, and unwittingly gets his computer genius and Asperger's sufferer brother, Jesse, involved. The pair then publish a video of the incident, and face the full weight of a political machine desperate to keep the truth out of the public eye. Starring Dan Spielman, Ashley Zukerman and Adele Perovic.
