A series worth revisiting
This drama series with a touch of comedy follows the relationships of several different people, some of them couples. The relationship between a Vancouver photographer (Alex Carter) and a Top-40 Toronto radio host (Shauna McDonald) seems impossible over the vast distance, but it is interesting to watch them try to work it out.

I enjoyed this show because it offers something for a variety of interests. There are other couples and singles in the story who have age, race, culture and gender preference differences. The characters have a number of professions including magazine editor, restaurant owner, high school teacher and street vendor. Throw in an American draft dodger (Stuart Margolin) with designs on local politics and you have a show that covers the 30 to 50 something group.

I felt this show spoke of my own coming of "middle age." One can be in any profession or in any relationship and identify with the struggles with self esteem and personal accomplishment as these characters do. While it was filmed in western Canada, it could be in any major Canadian city.

I would look forward to the possibility that this show could come back.
