So, I may have found the cheesiest TV show in the known universe. Chesapeake Shores is great for those who like Christmas movies, and it comes from the USA Hallmark network, which is famous for schmaltzy TV.
It’s crap. Not going to lie. But it’s addictive. It’s a drama about a workaholic mum moving back to her picturesque home town. The town is cosy and Gilmore Girlsish. The hot gardener from Desperate Housewives is her love interest, and there’s a cute Irish granny who dispenses the kind of wisdom you’d find on Facebook memes.
Thanks to this show I’m now dreaming of buying a lake front house and sitting around all day in cosy jumpers drinking tea.
This is getting on my tits now. Everyone has ridiculous white teeth, the grandma has the worst Irish accent I’ve heard in my life, and every storyline seems to wrap up far too perfectly. Just give me some drama damnit!
Definitely too many siblings. They should kill one of them off to make it more interesting.
Christ not another Netflix drama with an implausible roster of siblings. Please desist, unless you're willing to have them wear name badges and a brief resume such as 'black sheep' or 'shagging the brother in law'.
If you like this then you might like When Calls The Heart which is also on Netflix and also from the hallmark channel. Set in the early 20th century in a mining town in the frontier. Very smaltzy and twee but oddly addictive!

Oh god, why do they keep referencing 9/11? This show is a mess.
