    thanks for the heads up :smashin:

    Didn't realise this was now on air ... just looked it up and it seems they're still filming this 13-parter

    - they're still calling it a prequel but it doesn't appear to have any connection to the characters of Underbelly; is based on "the real events of the drug trade in the New South Wales town of Griffith between 1976–1987. The series depicts the key players in the Griffith drug trade, including Robert Trimbole, Terry Clark, George Freeman, and politician Donald Mackay."

    I have only seen the first episode but so far so good. I am so pleased they bought out a 2nd season. :thumbsup:

    This looks like its going to be a cracking season. I loved the first Underbelly and this one looks like more of the same and dare I say its slightly better.

    10/10 for the fist two episodes. :thumbsup:

    Excellent third episode.

    Mr Asia reminds me of a cross between Leonardo di Caprio and Russell Crowe.

    The new girl Alison is also a babe and spends most of her time with her clothes off. :devil:

    10/10

    I already have and they're ready to watch, was just hoping they would be coming to FX soon, as I have far too many other shows that I already have to hunt for aswell :D

    I looked on tv.com and it doesn't give any information on when the episodes air in AUS
    It only shows 2 episodes so far, but there are at least 3

    The opening episode of last week was a double-length one, and so widely listed as S02E01-02, hence this weeks 2nd episode is also regarded as episode 3 or S02E03

    I see that Sally from Home & Away appears next week

    since it was the 70s, there would realistically have been some tuft at many of the angles they were shooting

    Spoiler reply:
    I think its because if there is no body, there is no evidence of a murder.

    Also if they didnt take the body his wife would definitely have to tell the police as she would have a dead body in the house.

    Now its the wives word against the criminals as there is no body so a murder can not be proved.

    Spoiler reply:
    Blood could be from a bad cut. If there is no body then there is no murder which can be proved. They basically removed the evidence.

    The fact that Sal from home an away was there is another matter. :rotfl:

    I loved the first season and the second one is right up there with it. Maybe the best thing about it is the fact its "based on real events" so you just don't know whos going to wake up dead or be spending the rest of their life banged up.

    Season 2 is turning out to be superb viewing, better than the first season and that was first class.

    clearly this earlier remark of mine no longer appears to be the case

    spoilers:

    connections ...

    Narrator/Detective Jacqui James: Caroline Craig just narrating this series though the character appears as the baby daughter of Senior Detective Liz Cruickshank - both fictional characters I believe

    Alphonse Gangitano ("The Black Prince"): The younger Gangitano appears to have been part of the Kane crew .... not sure if this was ever true?? Nice nod to S1 with him walking over the police car.

    Judi Kane played by Kate Ritchie (Sally off Home & Away) is step-mother of Trisha Moran nee Kane (Jason Moran's widow, biological daughter of Les Kane)

    Mark "Chopper" Read ....
    - now I thought this might just be a made up association, but Chopper himself confirms it: Chopper gives Underbelly understudy a tick - Entertainment - BrisbaneTimes
