UNDERBELLY uses the framework of the war waging within the underworld, and the war between the underworld and the Purana Task Force, to explore a complex array of individual stories and relationships some touching, some incredible, all breathtaking. It is a series that examines the kaleidoscopic nature of loyalty, love, revenge and pride when the normal and identifiable emotions of human attachment are moved from the context of social decency to social indecency. Based on actual events, this explicit, gripping and violent trilogy exposes the shocking true story of the crime wave that rocked Australia from the 1970s until the early 2000s. Includes three, 13-episode series of Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities , The Golden Mile and War On The Streets .

Underbelly has 6 seasons and 3 movie specials, and all are top quality OZ stuff. If you like some gritty stuff that breaks the boundaries of the US style shows of this style, check it out!!!
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.
If you liked " The Sopranos" you will love this series. It is at times raw, and uncensored , as it should be , to tell this story. Based on some actual events, it rivets you from start to finish.
Sit back, and enjoy the ride, This is what great filmmaking is all about.
