Storyline

Born out of the telemovie of the same name, Offspring is a contemporary drama series about Nina Proudman, a thirtysomething obstetrician and her fabulously messy family. Following the Proudman family's adventures searching for love, fulfillment and balance in the chaos of modern life, Offspring is about the life forces that drive us all: love, sex, babies, food and music. Stylistically fresh and visually exciting, Offspring mixes conventional narrative drama with flashbacks, graphic animation and fantasy sequences, showcasing the vibrant world of Fitzroy, Melbourne, where Nina and the extended Proudman family go about their unpredictable daily lives.

quirky and funny
17 November 2016 | by selffamilySee all my reviews

I have just finished watching the first season on DVD, and am glad I resisted it on TV, broken up by adverts, this would not shine the way it does uninterrupted. The characters are brilliantly played, each a caricature, and thoroughly enjoyable. The background music is terrific, and I don't usually enjoy back ground music, if I even notice it. The parts of Melbourne shown to us in this series, are tempting and alluring. i don't see the problem with babies being born (although some are a little on the large size) as it's an obstetric ward in a hospital, so that makes sense. Maybe the story-line is a little over the top, but this is entertainment as the Australians do so well. As a previous reviewer has said, I've laughed and cried at this first series, and I see there are five more. Can't wait.
