Funny, romantic, wonderful
1 April 2002 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Who would have thought Paul Kaye (the obnoxious Dennis Pennis, the arrogant and rude Bob Slay in Perfect World) could pull off a convincing romantic lead? But he does. As is the case with nearly all of the characters in this series, his acting is top notch. This, together with a script that is often funny, sometimes touching, and only rarely sentimental, produces a series that I looked forward to every week it was aired.

Two Thousand Acres of Sky involves a woman, her two children and their best friend (Kaye) who seek shelter on a small island. They try to build a new life and fit in with the local population, which is not easy. He loves her and her children, she considers him just a friend and explores other options. Sometimes you understand her, sometimes you just want to yell at her.

There are many other characters that we come to love, hate or just smile about. Many of the ingredients are the same as in most soap series, but the characters and situations are lifelike, charismatic and often downright funny. Which makes a big difference.
