It’s All Good is a show about knowing your rights... from your wrongs.

The show features New Zealand’s sharpest legal advisor, Aunty and her well-meaning nephew, Herman Faleafa. Herman means well but he often has his head in the clouds and doesn’t think things through, especially when it comes to money. So he needs Aunty and others to keep his feet on the ground.

Each episode focuses on a common situation than many New Zealanders will find themselves in, for example getting a loan or being a guarantor. Aunty does her best to make sure Herman has his head on straight and knows his rights, with a few laughs along the way.

So join Aunty and Herman in making sure you know you rights... from your wrongs.


Episode 1: Herman Faleafa wants a loan

Herman dreams of watching the rugby on his own big screen TV. He visits his local lender Marcus Money after deciding to take out a loan to purchase a 4K TV and finds getting a loan is not like it was in the past.

Episode 2: It costs how much?

Herman is still committed to realising his dreams of high definition glory but when he returns to see Marcus about getting a loan he finds out what the loan will really cost once fees and interest are added.

Episode 3: Tell him he’s dreaming

Herman needs someone to guarantee his loan so he can realise what Aunty refers to as “his ridiculously large television set aspirations”. But when Marcus outlines exactly what being a guarantor means, will Aunty agree to guarantee Herman’s loan?

Episode 4: Herman’s totally unexpected hot pie incident

In a totally unexpected hot pie incident Herman crashes his car into an ice cream van and loses his ability to earn money as a freelance taxi driver. Wondering if he will still have to make his loan repayments he turns to Aunty and Marcus for help and learns all about hardship applications.

Episode 5: The one when the repo guy comes

With his car still out of action, Herman has fallen behind on his car loan repayments. He comes face to face with the consequences when the repossession man turns up at his front door.

Episode 6: Cough it up Herman!

It’s Junior’s birthday and Herman is out shopping for party supplies. While looking for toys for the goodie bags, he discovers why toys for children under 3 must meet safety standards.


Well-meaning solo dad Herman has four great loves in his life – his children Junior and Leilani, his Aunty, rugby and steak and cheese pies. Not always in that order. Herman was studying to become a pastry chef with aspirations to one day start his own business, but when his partner left he put that aside to find a job. Now, as a freelance chauffeur (taxi driver) he fits his work around his kids. Unfortunately Herman has an expensive blind spot. He can’t say no. Salespeople have taken advantage of him in the past, convincing him to buy things he doesn’t really need. He needs help to think through his financial decisions, and that’s where Aunty comes in.

After Herman’s partner left him with the kids, Aunty showed her softer side by moving in to help out while he finds his feet again.

Of all his achievements, benching 180kg in his local Mangere gym would have once rated as Marcus’ finest. But that was a year ago, when life was all about winning. Aggressively. These days, Marcus prefers yoga and pilates to keep him in peak condition, and his softer outlook has helped him eradicate the hard sell from his repertoire as a money lender. Where in the past any business was good business, he now wants to do the right thing by his clients and make sure they think through their decisions.
