Intrigue abounds at the Grand Waimea Hotel, an exclusive Hawaiian escape for the wealthy, powerful and beautiful. Hawaiian-born Jason Matthews runs the hotel as the assistant manager and makes sure every guest gets everything they need. But when former flame, Nicole Booth, arrives as the hotel's new Director of Guest Relations, Jason's world is turned upside down. But the Grand Waimea owner, Vincent Colville, is staying on top of him to make sure his past with Nicole won't affect their work life. Just as interesting as the hotel's wild and crazy clientele is its staff, which is filled with friends, thrill-seekers, con artists, and dreamers in paradise. Waitress M.J.

Chris Remsen runs an adventure company that caters to Waimea guests. Bartender Frankie Seau keeps those guests well-lubricated while trying to hide a mysterious past. Also included is ... Written by
Judging from the pilot, which I watched last night...
...I have to say "North Shore" is a wonderful show, despite all the criticism it's getting for being a "Baywatch/O.C. ripoff". It is far from that. It's a step up from the "woe is me" lines the "O.C." actors feed each other, and the unrealistic plots of "Baywatch". All the actors are a delight to watch, especially Kristoffer Polaha and Nikki Deloach. I actually remember Deloach from her Mouseketeer days, but I never realized just how much acting ability she had until I watched last night's episode. She and the rest of the actors on the show are quite excellent, especially the main actor, the attractive Polaha. I'm definitely tuning in every Monday.
