Everything about this show hits the mark!
13 January 2018 | by MyMovieTVRomanceSee all my reviews

As a film and TV buff with far too many options to choose from, it can be a strain to decide on what new series to start. But, it helps when the story is interesting, the cast is perfect, and the soundtrack and score carries it along as though no time has passed at all. Yes, this show has all that and more.

I don't tend to review things, because it takes too long- just like watching certain shows takes too long. And that's time I will never get back! My time is valuable, and I won't waste it on something I don't enjoy. Like the character of Bernie in this series, we can all relate to having regrets and feeling like we don't have enough time to live the life we want and that life is just too short, period. So, if I'm taking the time here to post this, I liked it for sure, and I hope it gets picked up to series!

On a related note, one of the charms of this show is the simplemindedness of some of the people, the small town, low-income setting has a coziness all it's own, and as suggested above, the cast is just so likable! Glenn Close is her usual great self, and of note is Meg Ryan's son, Jack, who plays her nephew- hot as can be!!

In short, get on board with Sea Oak! I know there are so many shows to choose from, but this one is both light and dark, a nice departure from the usual extremes of one or the other, a cozy kind of black comedy that really does deserve to succeed!
