User Reviews

The most enjoyable television show ever made.
25 October 2000 | by s_grundy2See all my reviews

I grew up with The Beachcombers. As soon as the school holidays came I would excitedly check the tv guide to see if my favourite show would be on again. The Beachcombers is yet another example of the excellent quality of distinctly Canadian shows only the CBC could make. "Stoney Plains" and "Ritter's Cove" were also very enjoyable shows. I fell in love with The Beachcombers...even ol' Relic, and developed a fascination for stunningly beautiful Canada. The Beachcombers is a wonderful, feel good show...loads of good fun and laughs and a little sadness. It was very easy to become addicted to. I can honestly say it is still the most enjoyable series I have ever watched and I think always will be.
