Antonia Prebble & Pua Magasiva on "Outrageous Fortune" (2009)

The revolving door of PR guest stars on "Outrageous Fortune," which stars Antonia Prebble (Clare, Mystic Force), continues. In the fifth season episode "The Power to Charm," Pua Magasiva (Shane, Ninja Storm) makes his debut in the recurring role of Isaac Anesi, a new business colleague of Jethro West, the older brother of Prebble's character, Loretta. Magasiva appears in only one scene in this episode where he gets to share screentime with Prebble when their characters cross paths for the first time. Loretta finds Isaac & Jethro snorting cocaine in her office which she shares with her brother. She's curious as to who Isaac is and sets out to solve the mystery. She discovers that he organizes kickboxing matches but also has ties to some local, dangerous gangs who may want shares of Jethro's illegal drug trade. When she tries to get her brother to give up on this new business partnership, he accuses her of going soft thanks to her new boyfriend. When she learns her ex-boyfriend Hayden lied to her about the deal, she tosses him out of her life for good. And just as her personal life is going wonderfully with the straight-laced Graham, played by Nick Kemplen (voice of Osiris, Jungle Fury), Loretta dumps him as well, claiming he's too good for her. Loretta hopes to keep her hard edge while also declaring her independence from her brother and her ex. This episode was directed by RPM guest star Murray Keane (Benny, RPM).

have you considered putting these episodes on youtube?

Good question. I have not considered it. I can tell you that the episodes are available online if you're familiar with torrents. Youtube can be tough because of copyrights and mature content, like this show. That's also a reason I don't post clips here on the blog.

I was searching through torrents and I found downloads for "Aroha: Haka & Siva", an episode from the Aroha Film Series. Pua Magasiva starred in this episode, so I thought you would want to know. I can't remember exactly which search I used, but it's there.

Thanks. I'll look for it.
