“Virgin River,” is a romantic comedy and drama series with 10 episodes in Season 1 and is streaming on Netflix. It’s based on the book of the same name by Robyn Carr.
We meet Mel, played by Alexandra Breckenridge, a Midwife, and nurse; she’s hoping to start a new life in Virgin River, a small town in northern California. She’s accepted a job to work for Doc, played by Tim Matheson, and meets a love interest Jack, played by Martin Henderson, who owns and operates Jack’s Bar.
The Bottom-Line: I’m in 3 stars out of 4. Here’s what I enjoyed about this “Hallmark” in tone series; It’s by the book: safe, predictable, with likeable characters, beautiful scenery, and it’s heartwarming. The downside is the flat dialogue and the depth of the script. Just grab a cozy blanket and immerse yourself in the “Virgin River.”
