The long closed Molly's Reach, the diner located in the iconic but crumbling building on Gibsons, BC's waterfront, is imminently scheduled to be demolished by its part owner, Chuckchee Properties, the actual person behind Chuckchee who has decided to remain anonymous. That person is to whoever former but now deceased half owner, Relic Phillips, sold or deeded his part ownership. This move to demolish does not sit well with many who have just returned to Gibsons. Donna McGonigal, who grew up in Gibsons, is the other half owner, it given to her as a graduation present by her slightly shady father, Dave McGonigal, who bought that half from Relic in a get-rich-quick scheme which didn't pay off. Donna knew nothing about the demolition, but doesn't care just as long as she can sell her interest in the property. Always scheming Dave, however, wants to reopen Molly's Reach,... or so he says. Another interested party is Nick Adonidis, who has a ninety-nine year unbreakable lease for office ... Written by Huggo

I thought the "NBC" was about as well done as you could expect. A lot of the media "experts" (like the Globe and Mail) slagged this off in advance, but the original "Beachcombers" holds a place in the heart of all Canadians. Several old cast members are seen in cameos (the ones who are still alive, that is) but the spirit is the same somehow, despite Dave Thomas chewing the scenery every chance he gets. This is somehow meant to be lame, but the finished product meets with expectations. Now, did I watch the Christmas version or not? I can't seem to remember for some reason, perhaps because I've consumed more than a few BC microbrews this afternoon. Does Molly's Reach have Bowen Island Bitter on tap?
