Love Child–Season 4 Finale

So here we are again…another Love Child finale where the series’ future is uncertain. For those keeping score on the continuity front, it’s 2 December 1972 and Gough Whitlam has won the Federal election. It’s been three months since Laura passed away, just short of three months old. Other than the amount of time that passed between last season and

Love Child–Season 4, Episode 7

I’ve said in my reviews throughout the season, in particular the first three episodes, that the writing has been off kilter, and it was in this episode however in a different way.

Love Child–Season 4, Episode 2

Inevitably this episode was going to deal with the fallout of Patty’s death. I liked how the episode focused on the unanswered questions of Patty’s death rather than the emotions. While the emotional reactions and grief were addressed, it was done with subtlety. With Martha feeling guilty, Viv feeling sadness and disbelief, Matron lashing out in anger, and Joan feeling
