Grass Roots Series 2

This is a quirky series that continues the “adventures” from last season of the council from hell and the machinations that go on in the background. This is a 10 part series that covers quite a variety of themes that are sure to have you laughing at the discomfort and awkward situations that the good folk at Arcadia Waters find themselves in. 

The way that the stories are told is pretty clever with multiple tangents running through each episode so either you can watch the one episode and get a kick out of it or if you plough your way through the series (as you would if you buy the DVD), then you will notice multiple arcs that will make sense to you, giving a greater appreciation for how the show is put together. 

  • Art

  • Investigation

  • Youth

  • Egomania

  • Cars

  • By-Election

  • Dogs

  • Garbage

  • Prostitution

  • Crime

Series writer Geoffrey Atherden, helms the way the stories are put together and we know that it is in very capable hands. Atherden was also behind Mother and Son, another fantastic Australian series. 

The thing I liked the best about Grass Roots was the very human element behind every episode. Despite the fact that it is a dramatic comedy, there is excellent character development throughout and you really got the opportunity to identify with the cast. This type of in-depth build up is a mark of excellent writing and acting by the very capable cast who are convincing in their respective roles. 

If you want an intelligent show to have a laugh along at, then you could do a hell of a lot worse than Grass Roots Series 2. This is one very well put together season and personally I cannot wait to see more shows. Once again, Roadshow delivers the goods. Be sure to pick up a copy as soon as it’s available.
