And don’t forget- both parents!
Despite that, um, overkill, I really liked this show! I don’t ever watch hallmark and I’m unfamiliar with the books. And I never saw hart of Dixie. So where this show brought me back to was Everwood. Did anyone else here watch that utterly charming show, also about a health provider who moves to a small quirky mountain town after tragic family events, and must deal with hostility from the existing established doctor?
After a few episodes though, that comparison wore off a little as I realized this was going to explore some darker/more adult themes. I think the main characters are all terrific and watchable actors with real chemistry.
I have to say the greatest surprise was that I didn’t expect to be educated about the whole issue of illegal marijuana camps in national parks. I’ve been doing a deep dive into this and learning about all of the difficulties with the patchwork law enforcement ability and the very real environmental concerns. Kudos to the show for teaching about a compelling issue. Though I am not looking forward to next seasons unavoidable storylines with that crowd and the worst character, Brady. I hope they are kept to a minimum. I also hoped we would have resolved paige’s storyline a little more before the break. It seemed incomprehensible And out of character that preacher wouldn’t have immediately called Paige or gone over to her as soon as that guy suddenly left the bar.
The least compelling actress for me was Joey- I did care for the sister relationship but just didn’t quite buy her in the part.
all in all, very enjoyable binge while I have been in bed with flu. I am recommending to my mom, who also loved Everwood.
