    This new 6-part Australian political thriller starts with a double-bill on BBC Four next Saturday (11th Oct), 9pm-10.55pm, having only started on 21st September in Australia (they get ep 3 tomorrow), so we should be only 6 days behind by ep 3 and l assume there will be no further double-bills here apart from eps 1-2.

    Will definitely give this a go, any thing with Lucy Lawless in has to be worth a watch.

    Really enjoyed the first couple of episodes, nice to have a different backdrop.

    The only negative for me was that I can't take Adam garlic seriously, keep waiting for him to do some tap dancing.

    Have been down under and caught the first three eps, good stuff. Not pantomimey like series 2 of the Danish/Swedish The Bridge. Didn't realise Rectify's Aden Young was Australian (Australian-Canadian to be precise).

    BBC4's trailer ...

    Double-bill right now, ep 3 about to end and ep 4 about to start. Final double-bill next week, so we might be ahead of Australia by the ep 6 finale, unless thay have a double-bill tomorrow.

    Watched the first 3 and really enjoying it. This would have gone completely under the radar if I'd not read about it here :thumbsup:.

    I realised auto-correct must have come into play after spending 10 minutes googling Adam Garlic :laugh:.

    I'm still none the wiser. Could be Adam Ginger for all I know. Whoever he is and whatever he has done he is still not as famous as Orson Welles, Barack Obama or Geronimo the Indian.

    Enjoyed that conclusion - didnt guess the twists, apart from the final one. Potential for a sequel with the same characters ... might see more of "Adam Garlic".
