It’s an ab­sur­dist com­edy that has trans­ported its be­guil­ing anti-hero to the pol­i­tics of Can­berra. And with all the shenani­gans go­ing on in our real-life par­lia­ment, the ca­pers of off­beat Cleaver Greene (Richard Roxburgh, “left) don’t seem so far-fetched, af­ter all. In this hit lo­cal se­ries, just about any­thing can fly. Tonight, Cleaver’s home plumb­ing is­sues il­lu­mi­nate the real cause of the ex­plo­sion at Par­lia­ment House.

Mean­while, an in­tended hit gone wrong brings about a sud­den Se­nate res­ig­na­tion.
