Anyone else watching?

Certainly an eye opener on how far we have come & how appreciative I am for modern appliances.

Yes, I like it as a concept.  Particularly as its only a taste, not months of it like other shows. DS really liked the last season, so I let him watch it too. 

 

mock turtle soup caused a lot of retching.

Watched it for the first time tonight. I really like it! My mum tells stories of washing day in the 40’s and 50’s. I was thinking of her as I watched the mum use the wringer.

never. I have seen them at the butcher, and they just remind me of my cat.

Does anyone know where the house is? They went to harbord beach, so I’m thinking north shore of Sydney? 
 

the first series was filmed in kogarah, just near where I used to live. I think that was the family’s own home

I still can't quite work out how they transformed that kitchen and dining room so radically for each decade last season.

They probably would have had a chippie working in a shed out the back, and be able to redo the set within a day while everyone went out to work.

It was eat rabbit or go without protein in the 50s for most families.

We used to go out to the farms at night and shoot them or starve for meat and we were not considered a 'poor' family.

Times have changed.

My Dad and Grandad ate rabbit when they first moved to the farm in the 60’s.  It was the best thing available.

I'll watch it on catchup. I loved series on Foxtel, with the family in London,  I found the first Aussie series a bit uninteresting in comparison but it was still  not bad.
