Channel 7, Tuesday, 8.30pm ★★★★ Winners & Losers began life on slightly shaky foundations. A series about four young women and how their lives would change inexorably by a massive lottery win sounded fine in theory, but you couldn’t help but wonder about the show’s prospects of sustaining long-term dramatic impact. Perhaps our memories are clouded by the unforgettable Channel 9 drama Chances, which centred on a family coming to terms with a monster lottery win. When it became apparent audiences didn’t much care for the show and ratings went down, so did the trousers of the cast. Network executives panicked and turned Chances into a saucy romp. The same won’t happen to Winners & Losers, which is evolving nicely. One of the good things about the show is that it has shone a spotlight on talent that’s relatively new to TV. Melissa Bergland (pictured) is one of those stars on the rise. She’s a standout as Jenny Gross, who is battling with emotional conflict. Will Jenny go for the musician she’d have once thought out of reach, or stick with Cal?
