A CHANCE AT ROMANCE
“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.
