This show is hilarious and through sharp observations, brings to life the supposed distinctions between supposed middle class and 'bogan' characteristics in Oz, and their members, and how they intersect, clash, and rely on each other. Really, really great show.

Hilarious, so much fun to watch. It's very cleverly written and each season just keeps getting better. Totally love Michala Banas as Amber Wheeler. I highly recommend this show. Well done all involved. :-)

My wife and I love this show. But It really sucks because we can't find it to buy on dvd in the U S A. We watched it on Hulu under the title Bess of Both Worlds. But it expired yesterday. We would like to buy the complete set.
