“TV Picks – I love the actors, I love how it looks”

– News Limited, November 7, 2013

“If there is one good test of a show’s artistic success it could be this: after watching the first episode of Nowhere Boys, I just wanted to watch the second straight away.  And I’m not even in the target demographic… The fact that it is so well produced and performed is just the icing on the cake.”

“ADDICTIVE ENTERTAINMENT… it’s good stuff: pacey and addictive yoof-tainment with snazzy packaging and a compelling “what if” existential premise…. Nowhere Boys is off to a roaring start. It arrives bearing hallmarks of a future Australian classic — one part Gillian Rubinstein, one part Rod Serling — and solicits the best kind of response a local production can hope for: we leave wondering why the industry doesn’t make more shows like it.”
