2002 Melbourne. Twentysomething residents in an apartment block welcome the chance to unwind and chat, supporting the others as relationships unravel. Central is Evan, on the dole whilst tackling his second novel. Actress Miranda aspires for more than adverts for zits. Gay actor Richie hopes for more than soaps. Alex fancies fellow medic Rex. Scarily clinging Gabrielle obsesses over her married boss Dominic. All the while bar owner Simon listens, observes and occasionally discreetly helps.
Forever soul searching, everything proves a tad predictable, interest gained when there is more substance (a subplot about bullying in the workplace; a homophobic attack; different ethnic backgrounds threatening hopes for marriage; lawyer Jason bonding with his baby son).
The cast has a ball, as demonstrated in the Behind the Scenes bonus feature. The result entertains and is full of humour. Although liking it very much, I would have appreciated more depth - newcomer Christian given greater scope, characters seen more in their place of work. This happens in Season 3 which, on the whole, I preferred. Do not be put off Season 2, though. Sit back and enjoy.
