'800 Words Season 1' DVD Review

George Turner (Erik Thomson) has just become a widower. Devastated by the death of his wife, he ponders his future as alone. While logged into the Internet George decides he needs a clean break and a fresh start for he and his teenage children Shay (Melina Vidler) and Arlo (Benson Jack Anthony). Now, this all sounds pretty good except for the fact that George will be leaving a very lucrative job in Sydney and moving to a small seaside town in New Zealand. Weld is a beautiful little hamlet but it is completely opposite of the hustle and bustle of Sydney. What makes this even more interesting is Weld's citizens. They can be somewhat eccentric like the local handyman Woody (Rick Donald ).

Shay and Arlo cannot believe that their father would decide to just jump up and move. Let alone the fact that they just lost their mother and they are completely devastated ,but now they have to put up with completely new surroundings. This makes for some huge laughs when the family makes the move. George is not a bad looking fellow and when some of the single women of Weld hear that he is a widower, well yes it doesn't get any better than this. '800 Words' is filled with a special kind of warmth in the midst of a tragedy and makes for some good entertainment. 

Acorn brings this highly acclaimed show to DVD on December 13th, 2016. The quality of the DVD is fantastic and the sights and sounds are excellent. '800 Words Season 1' is excellent entertainment and will bring the whole family together. This will make a great addition to your personal library and it would make a very special gift for that extra special someone this holiday season. So sit back and enjoy some great entertainment from down under. George Turner and his children try to leave the recent tragedy of loss of wife  and mother but when they jump up and move to Weld, New Zealand it just makes for some good laughs. Enjoy.
