Review of "Reef Break" 6/25/18 by Suzanne
airs Thursdays, 10/9c on ABC

I'm enjoying this new breezy summer show. It's the perfect summer viewing series. The characters are fun and sexy, the locale is beautiful and full of sand, beaches and trees, and the stories are light and somewhat exciting.

I always love Poppy Montgomery. She seems to choose shows and movies that I like. She's originally from Australia (although she's done a perfectly fine American accent for years on her shows "Without a Trace" and "Unforgettable"), and this show is filmed in Queensland.  It's very beautiful and reminds me of Hawaii. The series is set in a fictional place called Reef Island, a U.S. territory.

She plays Cat, a somewhat-reformed thief who works with the police on some local crimes. She has a former FBI agent, Jake (Rick Stevenson) as husband, but they don't live together because they got married when he was undercover; yet it's clear that they still have a lot of affection for each other. She also has a boyfriend - a sexy young detective named Wyatt (Desmond Chiam). She seems to always be enjoying life, whether someone's shooting at her or not. She usually has the upper hand.

It's an amusing detective show; the kind that you can just sit back and watch, without very much thought. I would say it's the TV equivalent of a popcorn movie.
