... interaction between William Snow and Rachel Blakely.
These two were great together. You could see a great working chemistry between the actors and it was unfortunate that those behind the show chose to keep their characters, for the most part, away from each other. What is wrong with Grief anyway? Even after he dumps his island honey, Lavinia, he still won't get smoochy with gorgeous Isabelle Reed who was obviously very hot for him.
But it was a great show, terrific scenery, acting and characters, and I'm sorry it only ran for a year. Am also mightily sorry it never showed in the U.S.A. where TALES OF THE SOUTH SEAS would have a huge following because of the THE LOST WORLD connection (Blakely and Snow again).
