Outrageous Fortune is the best New Zealand drama screened today. It promotes real-life situations and struggles. It is a show that most people can relate to, whether it has happened to you or someone else. There's no other show that deals with day-to-day life.

Great characters! Great settings! Great stoylines! Don't let this show come to an end!

"Hands down the best kiwi tv series!"

Cheryl, Wolf, Ted, Van, Jethro, Pascalle & Loretta West are the disfuntional family we all love! We see Cheryl's decision to “go straight” after Wolf gets sent to prison and the impact is has on the lives of the rest of the family. This is a great TV series and the characters are all so easily related to.

Amazing show, I got it for my sister for her birthday. May have been slightly for me tho. The script writing is amazing and the acting is terrific. Buy this season to see where it all began.

Great show has it all laughter, sadness, great actors


The Wests are a one-family crime wave with a proud tradition of thievery, larceny and petty crime – until now. When patriarch Wolfgang West is sentenced to four years in jail, his wife Cheryl decides enough is enough; the family are cleaning up their act and going straight. Can the Wests live up to Cheryl’s resolve and stay out of crime? It’s not easy to be a saint when you have the DNA of a sinner.

Outrageous Fortune is a bold family comedy-drama about the wrong sort of people trying to do the right thing. A bold, fresh series by turns bawdy, actionpacked, satirical and trashy, this is cutting edge contemporary drama.
