4.5 Awesome! Saundazzz | 22/01/2013 | See all Saundazzz's reviews (54) I found it a little hard to get into this to begin with as I was a big fan of Nathan, and thought the show couldn't work without him. His unexpeced departure does slightly change the feel of the show, but not as much as I had expected, but Rudy is, however, a brilliant replacement and, if anything, works better for the dynamic of the group.The storylines are still extremely well written and just as dark and gritty as we have come to expect, with the hilarious humour from the previous series still present, as well as the great chemistry between the cast (both old and new). The series never reaches the height of brilliance that is the first series, but I don't think anything they do ever will, as it was as close to perfect as you can get!There are the usual slight plotholes to overlook, but overall I would definitely recommend this series, and say not to pass on it just because of the character change. It's still brilliant and easily one of the best shows on TV at the moment.Also for Nathan fans, his farewell film "Vegas, Baby!" is included as one of the special features, a nice touch.
