I had no intention of watching "Beach Girls," but I ended up being stuck between something or nothing... I chose something.
I actually found the miniseries quite enjoyable. At first I was like, "Oh yeah, right, this will be real fun," but as time progressed I found myself glued to the screen. The end of the first episode is a real pain - they purposely leave you hanging... I felt like an 80-year-old granny watching her "stories"! Rob Lowe stars as a big city attorney who decides to take his teenaged daughter to a beach named Hubbard's Point, where he and the girl's mother met years before and grew up.
His daughter at first resents having to move there but quickly makes friends with local girls - in particular a feisty and strong blonde-haired girl who refuses to have sex with anyone.
This leads to a subplot involving a gang of boys making a bet over whether the lady's man can get her into bed.
Other stuff happens - Lowe's old female friend/his dead wife's ex-best friend pops up as a possible romantic interest and Lowe's daughter becomes friends with her against his wishes...so on and so forth.
Give this show a go. You may find yourself surprised by how entertaining it is. And for what it's worth, the acting is pretty strong considering it's a made-for-TV program.
