Years after the original series, John Constable and his family returns to Gibsons to find the old Molly's Reach diner condemned. While he's willing to let the past lie, others have other ideas. Amoung them is Scott Rivers, a young protégé of Nick who returns to object to the demolition, citing Nick's old tenant contract for his salvage business office inside. There's also the old con man, Dave MacGonigal who interferes with his daughter's own desire to liquidate her share of the property rights of the building for his own scheming. Unknown to them, the estranged daughter of Relic, Cat, has her own nefarious plans for the property and is not about about to let a bunch of sentimentalists get in her way. The rivalries of an older generation are renewed as Scott attempts to restart the salvage business while his friends attempt to save the beloved diner. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (

25 February 2005 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I thought the "NBC" was about as well done as you could expect. A lot of the media "experts" (like the Globe and Mail) slagged this off in advance, but the original "Beachcombers" holds a place in the heart of all Canadians. Several old cast members are seen in cameos (the ones who are still alive, that is) but the spirit is the same somehow, despite Dave Thomas chewing the scenery every chance he gets. This is somehow meant to be lame, but the finished product meets with expectations. Now, did I watch the Christmas version or not? I can't seem to remember for some reason, perhaps because I've consumed more than a few BC microbrews this afternoon. Does Molly's Reach have Bowen Island Bitter on tap?
