Wild Boys

8:35pm Tuesday, March 6 on Prime


Mary is thrilled to have her younger brother Ben come to town. He’s fun, charming and a great uncle to Tommy. But Ben has other reasons for coming to Hopetoun and it doesn’t involve family. He enlists the help of the Wild Boys in what appears to be a straight up cash robbery. Except it’s not – they find themselves holding up The Rope Gang, a seriously nasty group of bushrangers, and nothing goes to plan. Shortly after, Tommy is kidnapped and a ransom demanded. But even once Mary scrabbles the money together, with substantial help from Fife, Tommy is not handed over. The hunt for Tommy is on – led by Fuller, Scanlon at Mary’s side. The Wild Boys conduct their own investigation (bushranger style) as Jack becomes obsessed with finding Tommy and returning him safely to Mary.

Just as the Wild Boys are relinquishing their plans to target Hopetoun’s Assayer, they run into Jessie, a disarming female bushranger with a taste for risk taking. She convinces them to join forces with her, but soon enough Jessie’s flawless plan is looking far more complicated. Not only does she lead the Wild Boys into a seemingly impossible robbery, but she leads Jack into a seemingly impossible scrape with Mary. And, it turns out that there’s more to her ‘spirited’ nature than meets the eye. She’s got a personal score to settle in Hopetoun.

In the midst of a rum shortage as a result of a spate of hold-ups (which are wrongly blamed on Jack), Fuller convinces Emilia to set the boys up to save Conrad. When the sting goes wrong and Conrad’s shot, Jack’s convinced they have a rat in their ranks. As loyalties are questioned and suspicions raised, Jack comes up with a dangerous plan to help Mary and save Conrad.

With body parts turning up in the bush around Hopetoun, there are rumours that a cannibal is on the loose. But when Scanlon pulls a dead woman from the river, he comes to realise that a villain from the days he was a cattle duffer with Jack has returned. Jack initially disbelieves Scanlon, but soon changes his tune, and the two former friends are forced to work together to catch Brady. Brady eventually targets Mary, and Jack and Scanlon must work together to save Mary’s life and kill Brady once and for all.

With the Hopetoun Cup being run in town, Jack is determined to ride and win the event – and make a nice score by stealing the favourite, painting it up and entering it as their own. With Frank Butler in town to look for the killer of his brother, Fuller determined to fill his jail with criminals, and a dangerous detective hired by the bank to find the culprits, the boys are in the midst of a very deadly enterprise. But Scanlon is riding in the race and Jack is going to do anything it takes to stop him winning.

After Mary’s bar burns as a result of foul play, Jack decides to rob the Hopetoun Bank to help her out. But after the boys take the manager and his wife hostage they discover the bank’s vault is empty. Waiting for the gold transport to arrive, the plan goes from bad to worse. Conrad questions his role in the gang, the wife seduces Dan, the armed transport loses a wheel on the bush highway, and Jack discovers the murderous Joey Butler has been let free. Can the boys get their act together in time to take the bank, or will Jack’s desire to seek justice lead them all to hell?

Dan’s past comes back to haunt him when an old girlfriend convinces him to marry her – the gun pointed at his head is very convincing. Meanwhile, the Wild Boys are also being threatened by a new bushranger in town called Captain Moonlite: he’s dangerous, eccentric and rather elusive. Emilia’s new suitor Rupert Wentworth, chosen by her father, turns out to be more charming than Emilia imagined, if not a little flamboyant. And in an effort to protect Tommy, Jack puts his life on the line at the miners’ court.

Even though I’m not interested in watching Wild Boys. I love the ad in the background on this site. It makes Throng look more slick instead of having the plain white background.

Prime welcomes Wild Boys to its Tuesday night line-up with a feature length premiere! Moral codes are muddied by circumstance and opportunity. There’s gold for the taking, cash being splashed and power wielded ruthlessly with little regard for right and wrong. It’s hard to know the good guys from the bad when guns, blades and fists speak louder than any law. This is the world of the Wild Boys, a high-energy adventure series about a gang of bushrangers whose charisma and charm is as captivating and entertaining as their extreme exploits in the Australian bush.

Set in 1860s NSW at the frontier, where gold has lured the opportunistic away from the still fledgling main colonies, Wild Boys follows four men on the outside of the law as they come up against authority, the rich and greedy and the foibles of their own hearts. Jack wants enough gold to head west, buy land and settle down with the amazing Mary, Hopetoun’s publican, butcher and brothel owner. Dan wants enough gold to head west and buy women (any women, really).

Captain Gunpowder really just wants to have fun with Jack, Dan and his cache of explosives (and maybe win the heart of a certain school teacher). And Conrad really doesn’t care about the money. He just wants to elope with the mayor’s daughter Emilia. The Wild Boys are making plans for the future – but for now they have to make do with each other as they stage holdups, keeping one step ahead of the traps, trackers, and other outlaws. The question is, are they smart enough to stay ahead of Fuller, Fife and Scanlon, each of whom has a very good reason to want the Wild Boys dead?

Australia’s wild west comes to life tonight on Prime with Wildboys, starring Daniel MacPherson (Neighbours), Zoe Ventoura (Packed to the Rafters) and Anna Hutchison (Go Girls, Underbelly).

Catch the two hour feature length premiere tonight at 8:30pm on Prime.
