Editorial Reviews

Life isn't so sweet in Sugartown. For decades, the seaside hamlet has been kept afloat by the Burr candy factory, but now the company is struggling. Jason Burr (Shaun Dooley, Red Riding) is determined to keep the factory open and his family's legacy alive, while his posh brother, Max (Tom Ellis, Miranda), returns with plans to change Sugartown forever. Max wants to shutter the factory in favor of a trendy entertainment complex, but he may have more than business on his mind-namely, Jason's fianc‚e, Emily (Miranda Raison, Vexed, MI-5). This lighthearted comedy pits brother against brother in a battle for a town's soul and a woman's heart. Also starring Philip Jackson (Agatha Christie's Poirot, Little Voice), Sue Johnston (Waking the Dead), and Georgia King (The New Normal).

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky town of characters amuck a multiplex story March 15, 2013
Format:DVD
Zany. Scatterbrained. Misfits. But they all belong to Sugartown, home of the struggling but famous rock candy factory owned by brothers Jason (Shaun Dooley), who wants to save both factory and town, and Max, who initiates a take-over to convert the factory to a casino. Jason pops the question to Emily (Miranda Raison- MI-5), who has a lusty past with Max (Tom Ellis- The Passion). Master plot 2. Emily's dad is Sugartown Mayor, a hippie stuck in the 1960s, played by Philip Jackson, better known as Insp. Jap of Poirot TV legend. He plays a weird part well.

Added romances and secret complications come from other characters. `Sam' (Sally Dexter- also co-writer of this production), an ex-bunny dancer, cohort with Max of casino world, is joined in that effort by daughter Carmen (Georgia King- Little Dorrit), who's on-and-off with the local blowfly, rickshaw driver, Travis. The save-the-candy supporters include worker Margery (Sue Johnston- Clatterford & Little Dorrit) & Anne (Juliet Cowan). Ample seasoned cast to pull off the quirks of Sugartown.

SDH SUBTITLES optional for 3 episodes, but best watched back-2-back as a 3 hour feature. The plot thickens and twists during the series. Relationships crack like peanut brittle, secrets as sticky as taffy. Some spontaneous dance segments are fun, reminiscent of Mama Mia! Master plot 3 is the discovery that Sugartown was once a renowned dance hot-spot, as in Rave, FAME. Energetic music adds, but the costuming and set wallpaper looks like charity shop finds. Perfect for Mayor Ron and sad-case Anne but a bit over the top.

You will laugh, you will groan, you will cheer, you may even dance while viewing.

Old school romance with a modern twist. Sweet, smart and funny with a lot of heart. Where's season 2? And how can I live in Sugartown?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series! January 10, 2014
Format:DVD
Funny, warm, quirky and original. Loved it. Real people and real problems told with heart. Don't expect explosions and murders, it's about normal folk trying to get by in relationships, work and their community. Wish they'd made more.
