    "Very touching and compelling. It's a slice of life kind of series that deals with emotions, family, and connections. I love these kinds of shows and I've been replaying episodes of Offspring on nights when I'm alone chilling. "

    "So basically it is like X-Men. Still it's a very good series and really exciting as well!!! It's just saddening that, for instance, powerful beings are real, hundred percent sure that humans are gonna try to overpower them and destroy them. -_- "

    "This television series reminds me strongly of Orange is the new Black!! But I think Wentworth is much more darker and intense when it comes to plot and actual real life problems. It's very confrontational and serious."

    "This show kinda gives me the breakfast club vibes but at the same time it's very different. Maybe because it's about teenagers and their daily life. Summer heights is a very light and refreshing show that I'd recommend people to watch for those who just wanna chill and enjoy the afternoon."

    "It's like having a sneak peek at the life of the indigenous folk of Australia. I love how realistic it is when approaching issues and the drama is not there just to have drama. Everything happens for a reason, full of depth, and meaningful."

    "This is a show that tells the message of not judging someone based on his past. So what if you were a former druggie? You've changed for the better and is faring well so why the hate? Personally, I think this is an inspiring show that destroys the fallacy of drug addicts being hopeless and beyond redemption, doomed to destroy their lives forever."

    "This series is ridiculously intense and god, the way the story twists and turns leaves your jaw dropping on the ground and you can't put it back. It discusses and explores so many hidden social depths that has your mind reeling. I've never felt so agitated with a series before and that proves that this show is real good."
