I love this show. Despite its imperfections, this show consistently delivers. The two leads, Craig Horner and Bridget Regan, are an incredible combination. Their closeness and chemistry are almost tangible and absolutely engaging. Bruce Spence, as Zedd, balances them out wonderfully with wisdom of age and experience and a delightful sense of humor. Even the villain, played by Craig Parker, is excellent; unbelievably evil, intelligent enough to make a worthy opponent, and utterly convincing.
The writing is very good and consistently so. The story is inviting and appealing. This show is the kind that takes your hand and leads you into a world of make believe so completely you become enveloped inside it, enjoying every moment spent. The characters are well-developed and the exceptional acting leaves you feeling like you know them personally; you become not only interested in seeing them again, but as fully invested in their missions and plights as they are.
