We all love Offspring. All of us females in the 20 – 50 age bracket anyway. Many of us identify with Nina’s awkwardness and internal monoligue, and having a crazy yet utterly loveable family like the Proudmans. We want to hang with Billie and marry Patrick/Dr Henvel/Mick/Jimmy. Perhaps we relate to it because it is an Aussie production. In this world of globalisation, it’s truly refreshing to hear an Aussie accent on the television in a local setting.
This got me thinking of all the other great Aussie television series I have loved. Here is my top list in no particular order:
- Secret Life of Us
- Sea Change
- Kath and Kim
- Love My Way
- Summer Heights High
