When senior crown prosecutor Janet King (Marta Dusseldorp, A Place to Call Home, Jack Irish) returns from maternity leave, she is thrust into the spotlight on a controversial case involving a senior-ranking police officer. While building cases around a series of suspects, King clashes with Owen Mitchell (Damian Walshe-Howling, The Reef), a cunning colleague who will do anything to win. She also contends with Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli (Vince Colosimo, The Great Gatsby), who has strong convictions about the direction of the investigations and regularly challenges her authority. As King makes connections between seemingly unrelated crimes, she unearths a scandal that could damn both the police and the judiciary—and put herself and her family in danger. Dusseldorp delivers an award-winning performance as a brilliant “crownie” struggling to balance life at home with her commitment to her job in this multifaceted courtroom drama.

Not really mediocre - just a bit too P.C. to swallow
Actually one of those slow burners where the first episode makes one wonder where this is going. Stick with it and the story line is engaging. Interesting to see a non-American legal show from a Commonwealth country. Intersting characters with interesting, rather "human" faults & issues. Any character trait should somehow expand the viewer's appreciation of said character but in this instance, the namesake's lesbian background/life choice really smells of a writer(s)'s PC-'ism. Being such adds positively nothing to the character or the story. Once you realize this, then the PC-'ism of the various subplots starts to stink by association. What could have been a 4-5 star series wallows in the muck of the current "correct" culture that we are stuck with. Ms. Dusseldorp however has a remarkably appealing screen presence and so the rating is a 3 star "OK" because of her.
Mediocrity For All
If you're looking for extremely average fare to play in the background and barely pay attention to - it's your lucky day. Poor acting, ham-fisted dialogue, and ludicrously boring storylines, they're all here. Enjoy.
