Don't Blame the Koalas was a television series that aired from 2002 to 2003. The show followed the lives of a group of teenagers who attended an elite boarding school in Sydney, Australia. The series explored the ups and downs of adolescence, including friendship, first love, heartbreak, and the struggles of fitting in.

At the center of the series was a core group of friends, including the charismatic Alex (Shaun Loseby), the shy but intelligent Rosie (Basia A'Hern), the smooth-talking Zac (Edward Gargan), and the quirky Tamsin (Tara Jakszewicz). Together, they navigated the complex social hierarchy of the school, facing challenges from the popular crowd and dealing with their own personal issues along the way.

One of the main themes of the series was the clash between the privileged world of the boarding school and the everyday reality of life outside its walls. The characters often grappled with issues of class and privilege, as well as the pressures of living up to the expectations of their wealthy and successful parents.

Despite its serious themes, the show was also infused with humor and lighthearted moments. The characters often engaged in witty banter and playful pranks, adding a sense of fun and levity to the series.

As the show progressed, the characters grew and evolved, facing new challenges and overcoming obstacles. Alex, in particular, went through a significant transformation, initially embracing the hedonistic lifestyle of the school's popular crowd before realizing the value of true friendship and integrity.

Overall, Don't Blame the Koalas was a compelling and engaging series that captured the angst and uncertainty of adolescence in a relatable and authentic way. With its strong performances, sharp writing, and complex characters, the show remains a fan favorite and a beloved part of Australian television history.
