Depressing New England soap opera
9 September 1998 | by fluglotse1See all my reviews

A boat builder in a sleepy town in Maine is going out of business, and the lives of all of the (soon to be ex-)workers and families are disrupted. The biggest disappointment is that the two stars--Bates and Bridges--have only bit parts.

Interesting, but not something you would see twice.
