A Million Little Things (ABC) – Premieres 26th September
A drama where after the unexpected death of the Jon, the man brought them together, a group of friends begin to deal with his death and use it as a wake up call to start to make the most of their lives.
In the episode the three friends, Rome, a film maker who is stuck in a rut working on adverts, Gary, who has recently gone in remission for breast cancer and Eddie, a recovering alcoholic who is in a loveless marriage realised that as long as they’ve been friends they know nothing about each other.
This leads to Rome admitting that he was trying to commit suicide at the time he received the call about Jons death, Gary despite his nonchalant ways, is terrified that his cancer will return, and Eddie admits that he is cheating on his wife and is trying to find the right time to leave her.
While the programme sets everything up quickly, and the story goes along at a decent pace, as well as introducing an intriguing aspect on Jon’s suicide. It still struggles to have something that would make you want to check out the next episode, leaving it as something you’d have as background viewing at best.
