The reward this time was a new show on ABC called East of Everything. Set in Broken Bay, it follows the stories of two brothers acting as the executors of their recently deceased mother's estate, once a tropical resort which has since degenerated into disuse. It really strikes a chord with me somehow, and I'm really enjoying it.
A couple of quotes:
East of Everything reminds us that whatever our past, for most people there is the opportunity to recognise something good in it, which we can take and move on
It's a show about characters in large spaces. People are trapped by circumstance rather than geography.
Ultimately, we wanted to create a series that was very hopeful, which recognises that there is a melancholy sadness about life, but there is also a fantastic joy.
The last quote means the most to me. Fortunately, it's available as a podcast which suits my viewing habbits.
