Review of "Reef
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.
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
