SeaChange is must see TV
2 December 2006 | by cheerassistSee all my reviews

Saw a few episodes on public TV here in the States two - three years ago. Just enough to get hooked, but then the station moved the show to different times in the middle of the night and made it difficult to even tape. I've been looking for it ever since. Can't wait to reconnect w Laura and friends. The scenery is great; the characters are believable and likable, even the "Bad guy"; the stories pull you in and make you care what happens. Each episode leaves you wanting more... More sea, more sun, more misunderstandings, more understandings, more laughs, more friends. Call the travel agent! If Australia is this beautiful and much fun, we all need to make the trip.
