Premiering in 2012, The Shire explored the lives of 15 members of the beach community of Cronulla, in Sydney's Sutherland Shire.
The production company described the series as a "reality version of the long running soap Home and Away," and honestly, you couldn't have made some of these characters up.
Who can forget Sophie and Vernesa?
And do any of these people know how to correctly spell their names?
There were scenes of romance.
And dramatic ~love triangles~.
It was just a good time all round, really.
The show was so bad it made news headlines... on its own network.
While initially premiering to quite decent numbers, the show was later axed after just nine episodes -- none of which can be found anywhere on the internet.
Whatever, Channel 10. We haven't forgotten.
