Not much going on in Weston
4 December 2014 | by jchap1022See all my reviews

I really tried to enjoy this series on several occasions on my local PBS station, but nothing happens in it. I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did. I guess we're supposed to be waiting for Sarah to get married or have a real job but neither seems to be on the horizon. Some of the characters are funny in a quirky sort of way but the show seems to be comprised of inane dialog punctuated by some of the cast saying "laters." Sarah and her mother are interesting in the way they play off each other but Sarah seems to be closer to her "gran," who is too young to play Sarah's mother. The setting is rather claustrophobic in that small building but I suppose that's to give it more intimacy. The song "Beyond the Sea," which appears to be the show's theme, is terribly rendered, but there may be a reason for that, at least I hope so.
