800 Words, Season 3 Part 1 DVD
As the award-winning dramedy returns, new challenges await newspaper columnist George Turner (Erik Thomson, Packed to the Rafters) and his family, now settled in a charming New Zealand community after moving from Australia. Following last season’s harrowing boating accident, the townsfolk of Weld mount a search-and-rescue operation for the missing men, including the boyfriend of George’s daughter, Shay (Melina Vidler). 8 episodes, 6 hrs, 2 DVDs.
I’m watching the series for the second time while I’m waiting for the rest of Season 3 to come out. I really like the way Woody’s character has developed. He was pretty much hippy-dippy surfer dude in the first season, and he still often is, but he has gotten more depth and complexity in the second and third season. I think Rick Donald, the actor who plays him, is great and plays him with great subtlety.
