Zig and Zag are alien twin teen brothers from the Planet Zog. One day they were out flying around in their spaceship when they get sucked into a random black hole (it happens!) and end up crash landing in the suburbs on a strange green and blue planet called Earth. With their craft beyond repair, the brothers decide the only thing to do is plant a porch on the front of their shiny metal spaceship and called it ‘home'.
Join our inseparable extra-terrestrial brothers on a series of fun adventures creating all manner of mayhem as they make the most of what this cool new planet has to offer. With death-defying stunts, crazy inventions and banana and mackerel smoothies!
Life in the suburbs will never be the same for friend Nellie from the corner shop and neighbours Mrs Eyebrows and her invisible cat Mr President, Mr and Mrs Jones and their creepy staring twins Brie and Stilton, the uber-competitive neighbours Abs and Pek Von Pumpiniron, and not forgetting the Secret Agents: Agent A Gent and Agent Honey, tasked with keeping an eye on the alien visitors.

Zig and Zag - Zig Zag Railway - Netflix
The Zig Zag Railway is an Australian heritage railway, situated near the town of Lithgow in the state of New South Wales. The line climbs the western flank of the Blue Mountains, using railway zig zags to gain height. It was opened by the not for profit Zig Zag Railway Co-op. Ltd. as an unpaid volunteer staffed heritage railway in October 1975, using the alignment of the Lithgow Zig Zag line that formed part of the Main Western line between 1869 and 1910. Operation of the heritage railway was suspended in 2012 following accreditation issues with the New South Wales Government. The railway was aiming to resume services in October 2013, but was then severely damaged during the 2013 NSW Bushfires and then subsequently by torrential rain. Repairs are ongoing and trials of restored rail vehicles and track commenced in August 2016 and it is planned to re-commence limited heritage operations in 2018.

In 2003 the railway was used in the production of the Hollywood film Stealth. The area stood in for mountainous regions in North Korea and locomotives were specially painted with Korean Chosongul (Hangul) characters.
