    Default *SPINOFF* favourite Australian TV shows

    @LoveLivesHere inspired me with her post today. So what are your favourite Australian TV shows past and present?

    My absolute favourite tv show was puberty blues which ran for 2 seasons only a couple of years ago. It was the sharpest tv I've seen in a long time. Great writing, cast, cinematography, sets - it was spot on. Maybe it just resonated with me as it reminded me of my childhood but I loved it so much and was so sad it didn't rate well

    Other than that here are some I've really loved in no particular order:
    All Saints
    Wildside - fantastic Aussie drama
    Heartbreak High
    Masterchef
    The Hollowmen
    The Panel - such a gap in this genre. The project does not fill it.
    I Will Survive - this was the all men theatrical reality show recreating Priscilla scenes and journey a couple of years ago. Rated terribly. DH and I loved it.
    The Moodys

    Love to hear what your faves were/are!

    If it didn't rate well why did they make 3 seasons? Agree it was fantastic though.
