Storyline

Twenty suburban neighbors who played tho lottery together for years suddenly win a fortune working out at $19,000,000 each. Yet is also brings huge problems for many. Sean is a fugitive after an accident, so he offers lawyer Zoe half to cash his share, but she and his past shower misery over him time and again. Peter convinces a few others to take charge of the town's nearly bankrupt bicycle factory. Peter's wife Nina betrays him for partner Cameron, whose marriage to Beth also shatters over her child-wish. Minor Damien leaves home spending big, but ends up married to illegal Russian gold-digger Galina, who attracts all kinds of trouble. One share is disputed as Sunny claims it instead of a regular player. Written by KGF Vissers

Best New Show in Ages
22 June 2006 | by abdaughtrySee all my reviews

I can't imagine what kind of show the first reviewer on here likes, but I watched Windfall and was hooked immediately. It is no train wreck - it simply has many story lines for a variety of colorful characters. There is humor and drama. After each of the first two shows, I couldn't wait till the next one to see what would happen. Everyone I know who's watched this is also hooked on it. And I think the acting is fine - perhaps the critics could show the credentials that qualify them to criticize this great ensemble group. Also - there's no way they used Luke "Dylan" Perry from 90210 to get viewers. The only reason I tuned in was for Jason Gedrick, who is a far bigger star than anyone else, including Luke, although he didn't star in a television show that was watched by millions of adolescents. I will continue to watch it for all the other characters, as well. The fact that everyone else is unknown is just one more refreshing reason to watch and enjoy this show. NO ONE gets excessive screen time over anyone else. It is a show about many characters and many stories.
