TV Recap: The Gods of Wheat Street, S01E02

gods of wheat street s01e02This new ABC series is really, very awesome.

This week sees the return of Tristan, (Mark Coles Smith) Isolde (Shari Sebbens) and Ares (Bruce Carter) father, Jonesy Brown to Casino.  He has just been released from prison and is looking for two hundred thousand dollars he believes Odin (Kelton Pell) stole from him over fifteen years ago.

He is a really bad egg.  Yet, after punching Tristan in the face and stealing his money as well as whacking Odie with a pool cue, somehow, Isolde still has a place in her heart for him.  A part of her that just wants her dad.  It’s a terrible shame he is going to let her down with his bad egg ways.

The more I watch this show the more I find each character attractive in their own different ways.  As you may know, I’m more of a handsome detective kind of lass but there’s something about Odie’s toughness and his loyalty that makes him quite beautiful on screen.  Bruce Carter gives a stunning performance each week and carries the show on his broad, mechanic, blue singlet wearing shoulders.  He does it with ease too.

Meanwhile daughter Electra (Rarriwuy Hick) is getting in trouble at school, getting suspended after a few fist fights.  Electra feels the loss of her mother the most and her hurt is so obvious to everyone but her.

Libby (Lisa Flanagan) is still trying to impress Odin and her charms may have just worked!  It’s clear that Odin likes her, or as his daughter Athena (Miah Madden) would say, her father ‘like likes’ her.  The problem is getting a moment where the two can have a conversation alone, there’s much drama in the Freeburn household.

Tristan finally seems to have found the girl of his dreams in Anastasia but her father, the mechanic across the road from Odin, wants her to stay away from all of the Freeburns.  How long can their romance last with fathers and brother’s at war in the ever tense Wheat Street?

I’m going to love finding out.

 The Gods of Wheat Street airs on ABC1 at 8:30pm on Saturday nights
