    Lodge 49 is a lovely little show, wonderfully written with a deep, capable cast (David Pasquesi is another standout) and a welcome sense of quirky optimism and dark humor. It uses Long Beach and the ocean itself as characters; it confronts age, philosophy, dreams (both failed and yet to be realized), capitalism, hope and whimsy in ways that few series tackle.

    It’s not necessarily a problem that the show’s supporting characters are by and large better than its main protagonist; if it were, easily 85 percent of shows would be at a disadvantage. The real problem is that Dud isn’t nearly as fascinating as Lodge 49 thinks he is.
