I watched and was very interested  but lost interest when the story turned to the grandson.  The same  link was made in  A Place to Call Home, which I enjoyed.  I think simply I am much more drawn to drama which is not contemporary.

Did you watch it last night .. I did?!

 

I thought both stories were touching, but it seemed a stretch to link them with the "like grandfather - like grandson" line. Did Flora ever mention what happened to Adams parents, so that she had raised him? Do we wonder why her husband Michael Berryman died so young?

 

The "quick & meaningless sex" scenes, and Adam's awkwardness with Steve, makes me wonder if that ties into the generality that women are used to developing close friendships with other women, but men aren't used to developing those types of relationships with other men. So he doesn't seem to know how to get started with Steve, without it being "just sex".
