Added DiffLines:

* CatchPhrase: Conrad's "I'm not a bush ranger, I'm a farrier."
*{{Cliffhanger}}: Each episode other than the finale ends with one, with each new episode picking up with the same scene.


Added DiffLines:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Jack and Dan. For all their extreme teasing, the amount they rely on one another and worry about one another is extremely endearing. And while Jack [[spoiler: doesn't end up with Mary in the end]], he still has Dan.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlyAFleshWound: Jack, Conrad, and Mick all get shot in the shoulder/ chest, and recover quickly. Captain Gunpowder and Fuller get shot in the stomach, and are also apparently fine. Particularly ridiculous when you consider this was an era before antibiotics, and even blood transfusions.
