Trash TV

One of the new guilty pleasures at the corporate flat is watching "McLeod's Daughters", a ranch-based soap opera filmed in South Australia. Nothing like a good Aussie bloke using a post-hole digger while arguing with his new bride!

The show bought a working ranch out of Adelaide and it has a genuine Aussie cast, so I'm going to chalk it up to culture. I'm uh, perfecting my accent. Or something.

Vocab of the Day
Jackaroo: Station hand. Doesn't mean much until you realize that they call ranches stations. Female counterpart is the Jillaroo.

Stevie the jillaroo on McLeod's station is charged with murder, and her friends are trying to prove her innocent.
