The story centres around an Australian barrister whose "morals" are, to say the least "fluid" but he is far from being a crook and is at times played for laughs and at times can get quite serious.
Be aware that there are scences of full nudity, as one of the recurring plot lines revolves around various character's infidelities with each other. The scenes are a little stronger than what UK viewers might be used to on TV but very far from being out and out pornographic. The language can be quite strong at times. Again this is not "overdone".
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and so I have bought series 2 as well but please be aware that this probably comes in as an "after the nine o'clock watershead" type programme.
I found the series very enjoyable and I am now on series 3 but
