Site Update

A quick note, it has taken five months, but I’ve finally restored the posts that had been lost when my site was hacked in July and August.

Puberty Blues – DVD Review

The finale of ‘Puberty Blues’ airs tomorrow in Australia and it is a fantastic end to the series.

I’ve had a chance to view the finale and am looking forward to doing a re-watch in marathon format (as opposed to week by week format) shortly to see if my opinion of the show changes at all. I will say that in my opinion, the show loses nothing in its transition to DVD, especially when showcasing some locations, such as the ocean/beach scenes.

There are some extras on the DVD including the screen tests of Ashleigh, Brenna and Sean for their respective parts in the series.

The series comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray on Thursday.
