Episode 1: 800 Words

Summary

Zak, Ike and Steve are missing at sea and the town mounts a huge search-and-rescue operation, while Jan has gone into labour. Antipodean comedy drama, starring Erik Thomson.

Review

If you were hoping to see the last two episodes of Red Rock, you’ll have to wait until they’ve been shown in Ireland. Instead there’s this frothy Antipodean drama. You may remember that newspaper columnist George (Erik Thomson) relocated himself and his two teenagers to a tiny village in New Zealand after his wife died. Since then they’ve gone through the whole gamut of emotions, friction, romance, and revelations you’d expect from a soapy drama.

As series three (reportedly the last ever) begins, Weld is searching for Ike, Zac and Steve who’re lost at sea. But in 800 Words nothing too dreadful ever happens so you can be certain the cast will still look as unrealistically attractive as ever.
