It was one of the new shows available on ‘Acorn TV‘ (i.e., British shows) on the Roku. I was attracted to it just by its title — since it immediately brought to mind ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’. Well it is NOWHERE close to being that funny — BUT to be fair, it is not meant to be. It is more of a (somewhat obvious, predictable and stereotyped) romance-drama. It is OK. Teischan finds it ‘acceptable’ and I found it HOPING that she would like it. “Mrs. Hughes” from ‘Downton Abbey‘ made and appearance and that was a bonus.

Right from the start the scenery, especially the BEACHES, reminded me of CeylonSri Lanka — especially those around Galle that I was extremely conversant with during my 14-years there. But, having also been to India, multiple times, I knew that the southwest coast of Southern India was similar. The catamaran boats shown also reminded me of Sri Lanka ….

Then I checked IMDb.com. It was indeed shot in Sri Lanka! Wow. Now I will have to tell Teischan.
