Amusing in a quiet way
2 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

I would love to see more shows like this one! I don't want to say much about the characters and what this series is about. The story focuses on a little cafè at the sea somewhere near Bristol. Not much happens and that is what I like about it - it is simple. The characters are likable and you want to know what will happen to them. The little seaside town is idyllic, the plot can be summarized quickly, uneventful but not in a negative way, not boring. This is nice and easy entertainment. After having gotten used to / bored with US TV shows that use a lot of profanity, sex scenes and violence to attract viewers, I really enjoyed how ordinary and simple this show is and at the same time amusing. It proves that you don't need a lot of action to entertain an audience - a story about the customers and owners of a cafè and their little problems / love interests can be enough. I'm really looking forward to the next episodes and I hope that I will be able to hear them say "Laters!" (do people really say that?) for at least another season.
