The Best Years: Saturday 18 April, 3pm

Back on TV2 this week is The Best Years, a compelling drama which tells the story of Samantha Best, an orphan beginning a new life when she is accepted on scholarship into a prestigious university.

Shuffled through the foster care system her entire life, Samantha is finally looking forward to a future of new opportunities and friendships. Starting her freshman year at Charles University in Boston, Massachusetts, she has to contend with the ins and outs of college as she struggles to find her own identity.

Samantha and her fellow students go about setting up their futures at college, only to discover that the future is now. Every decision they make – good or bad – will affect the rest of their lives. The opportunity to reinvent themselves and really become who they want to be, is within reach, but one wrong step can lead to disaster.
