Storyline

The long closed Molly's Reach, the diner located in the iconic but crumbling building on Gibsons, BC's waterfront, is imminently scheduled to be demolished by its part owner, Chuckchee Properties, the actual person behind Chuckchee who has decided to remain anonymous. That person is to whoever former but now deceased half owner, Relic Phillips, sold or deeded his part ownership. This move to demolish does not sit well with many who have just returned to Gibsons. Donna McGonigal, who grew up in Gibsons, is the other half owner, it given to her as a graduation present by her slightly shady father, Dave McGonigal, who bought that half from Relic in a get-rich-quick scheme which didn't pay off. Donna knew nothing about the demolition, but doesn't care just as long as she can sell her interest in the property. Always scheming Dave, however, wants to reopen Molly's Reach,... or so he says. Another interested party is Nick Adonidis, who has a ninety-nine year unbreakable lease for office ... Written by Huggo

A travesty of Justice
13 November 2005 | by fiascoisabuhSee all my reviews

I was hoping to see some of the magic of the old Beachcombers series and all I found was disappointment. Some of the subplots seemed to go nowhere and seemed to only be there to fill time. The story overall was weak, but it could have worked. The main characters are mostly all new and needed to be developed better. Most of the old cast was just misused in what seemed to be an attempt to bring back some nostalgia of the old show in a failed attempt. There would be great potential in the cast and the stories if they were brought back in a new television series as the story needed to develop, but this just doesn't work. Maybe we can petition the CBC to bring back the old show on late nights and we can re-live the charming show with our beloved characters.
