A CHANCE AT RO­MANCE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Don't Miss This Week... -

“THEY say when a mar­riage is ended by death, women mourn and men re­place. Which is harsh, but yes, we do make mis­takes. We’re lonely. We’re sad. We miss her. But then the day ar­rives, a mo­ment when you’re not lonely, you’re not drown­ing in loss, you’re not crav­ing com­pan­ion­ship just to stop the pain. You’re just look­ing at a woman and it takes you by sur­prise. And you think, ‘ Why not?’.”

Three sea­sons in, and about half a dozen women in the fic­tional fishing vil­lage of Weld later, fi­nally that mo­ment, that woman seems to have ar­rived, or so thinks wi­d­ower Ge­orge (Erik Thom­son, pic­tured).

I gotta ad­mit, I drifted away from this se­ries some­where in be­tween the many episodes where he thought about mov­ing on, then didn’t; thought he’d found another love, but hadn’t. So is this his sec­ond chance at true ro­mance? The ghost of his wife Laura seems to think so, pop­ping up in this sea­son re­turn just to, you know, com­pli­cate mat­ters for him. All I’m say­ing, is keep this one mov­ing on, or this se­ries is go­ing to find it­self six feet un­der in the rat­ings.
