Good start to what has the ingredients to become a winning series.
8 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

First off I have to say Lucy Hale is a real cutie pie. She plays the lead role as Stella Abbott, who in her teens developed a case of terminal cancer. She has been receiving the best treatments but in a flashback of sorts we see she was given 6 to 8 months to live. So her dad sent her off to Paris for a "bucket list" trip, and she met Elliot Knight as Wes, they hit it off, they fell in love, they married.

They return to her small Oregon community (actually filmed in Canada) and live happily, expecting ever-after to be a few months. But the show kicks into high gear when Stella gets the word from her Oncologist that her cancer is gone, she has been cured.

So this show takes the unusual premise that life is easy and straightforward when you only have a few months to live, you do what you want, everyone treats you with kid gloves, friends and family want to make your last days as pleasant as possible.

But the real hard part of life happens when you find out that you may have 60 or 70 more years to live. What will you do for a career? Will you want to have kids? And what do you do when you find out your family has a number of big issues they have been hiding from you?

The two main characters are in all 13 episodes of the first season, so we are destined to see how the happy couple cope with all this.

Good start, a somewhat serious show with lots of humor.
