1 9 9 1 – 1 9 9 2 (Australia)
127 x 60 minute episodes
Debuting on 29 January 1991, this Australian “adult” soap opera from the Nine Network revolved around an extended family who are transformed when they win $3 million in a lottery.
Jeremy Sims starred as advertising executive Alex Taylor, the essential “resident bastard” of the show and early episodes dealt with the impact of this fortunate event. Later episodes introduced bizarre plotlines involving (among other things) neo-Nazis, Triad gangsters, ghosts and carnivorous plants.
In August 1991, the show was cut from its original two hours a week (at 8:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) to one hour at 9:30 PM on Tuesday nights.
