Cape Town 90210
This show has good potential but overall I find it somewhat disappointing. It's potential lies in its cast. Each person is cast perfectly. Each actor delivers their character's story brilliantly. It's also a beautifully filmed series with some great cinematography. There are wonderful moments in this show and the storyline is a great idea. My disappointment is in the execution. Too many times the script has far too much overly dramatic flair. The show can become too soap opera with many dumb decisions and actions especially by the main character. There is a lot of unnecessary fluff which really drags the series from the main story and therefore prolongs the eventual outcome. Because of all these unnecessary diversions, the simple story of a girl seeking the truth about her abducted sister has been transformed into a South African Beverly Hills 90210.
Overall, this show should have been only one season but instead there will be more. Sadly after viewing all of the soap opera antics, who knows how the original storyline of a child abduction will, when our even ever come to a conclusion.
