Highly Overrated But Still Good
It's fun, it's light, [but] it has a hard time when its tries to get heavy.
It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties.
watched all 4 seasons the past month or two. it is one of my favorite dramas of all time. great writing, interesting minor characters that you grow to care about. solidly acted and good casting. very realistic portrayals of the lives of the younger characters too. Emily Vancamp went on to have a strong career after this. Harold is a great character, always in character and you go from thinking he is a dweeb to liking him. same with Hannah, a great addition to the cast. the final few episodes wrapped up the series quite nicely. I would love to see a reunion movie on netflix ala the new Gilmore Girls revival.highly recommended
Everwood. The story of a man and his family, whom upon a tragic death, uproot their life in New York city and move to Everwood, Colorado.Treat Williams pulls off a fine display as Dr. Andrew Brown, a single father trying to restart his life after an emotional loss. Andy tries hard to fix things, be it a local marriage, the town's awareness of STDs, or his less than perfect relationship with his son, Ephram, played by Gregory Smith. Ephram, a gifted pianist, has his own troubles to deal with... notably his "new guy" status and the connection he makes with Amy Abbot, daughter of his father's medical rival and girlfriend of the local 'Mr. Popular'.All in all, the series plays out wonderfully. The lush setting of Everwood keeps it far from the fancy glitz often seen in today's television, and gives the show a home feel to it. The developing characters weave together a complete picture of the mountain town. A place where everyone knows one another, and community is hard to avoid.In my personal opinion, Everwood is one of the best shows on television today. With as much emphasis as there is being put on bright lights and big city, it is refreshing to find a down to earth realistic show that doesn't scream for attention through forced drama and scandalous plot.Personal rating: 10/10
I do not usually go in for this type of television show. it was recommended to me and I watched the first episode and was caught by it. It reaches into something basic in everyone struggling these days to function either as a whole family or as a family missing key members. Dealing with day to day strife within their lives and presenting them in realistic ways that reach out to anyone that has experienced similar things in their lives. Production was great and story lines are cohesive and binding you to the characters hoping for them to succeed in their lives. Watching as they stumble and pick themselves up and go onward. It is heartening to see someone dealing with life in such an upfront way and occasionally succeeding.
I love this show. I discovered it last summer when ITV showed the first 3 seasons and it hooked me, even though it wasn't prime time TV. The show is very similar to Dawson's Creek in style, it has a sensitive and softly approach but with the right mix of humour and humanity. It works because all the characters develop fully, reeling the audience in. I felt like I really cared about the every-day, believable characters and I so wanted Amy and Ephram to get together! Also it's not like the OC, which focuses mainly on the kids - this more so on the adults but draws in a teen audience with the extremely talented teen cast. It is an absolute shame that this show was a) cancelled after only 4 seasons, and b) didn't pick up more awards. So stupid! It seems people only like a certain type of show, but the writers and actors of Everwood deserve more credit. One of my favourite shows.
