As with any program with many tales to tell, some are definitely more effective than others. While I may not personally think that every season of "Underbelly" merits a five star rating, I think that in scope and ambition--this set is a must see proposition and I'll gladly give it the highest rating for that reason. "Underbelly: The Trilogy" does present the first three seasons complete and uncut. Each season is, as I said, thirteen episodes with each program approximately 50 minutes in length.Read more ›
The three series were great. My favorite was the first one and my least favorite was the Sydney based one. Obviously this comes from a Melbournian bias.. LOL
A few things about the dvds themselves.
There is no closed captioning or language options. So if you do not understand some Aussie slang, etc you will never pick up on it. Also there are no scene selection capabilities.
These are really good shows. I hope they do something on Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read now that he as passed on.
The flick "Chopper" was good but an Underbelly version could be great.
The series has been compared to the Sopranos. No way. The Sopranos was a black comedy. Although there was an overall series arc, each one-hour episode could stand alone; whereas Underbelly is a serial, and each episode continues where the previous one left off.
I found the show to be refreshingly different and thoroughly enjoyed seeing unknown actors and fresh locations. Australia has a huge stable of very good actors. Unfortunately after this series many of them will be seduced by Hollywood and end up in routine formulaic police dramas. My only gripe with the DVD is the lack of captions or subtitling which makes it difficult for me being hearing impaired.

I managed to get through two episodes. Bad acting! Looks like a poorly made 1980's TV show that only comes on after midnight. Not even close to The Wire.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
