Widowed mom Cate Hennessy raises three teens in this sitcom, which shifted focus in 2003 following the sudden death of its star, John Ritter, just before the start of its second season.
Cate's father Jim (James Garner) joined the show and helped the family adjust to the loss.
That all changed however, after Marathon had its press screening.
It was reported immediately after in numerous newspapers that the journalists in attendance applauded long and hard following the press screening and that most of them were in tears.
Almost missed among all that was a quiet film directed by a virtual unknown but starring the talented Jo Seung-woo.
Most questions had to do with how Jo Seung-woo was able to convincingly take on the role of an autistic young man.A peacock appears on the island, with no clear explanation or motivation.And the tango, a very un-Korean pasttime, makes a striking appearance in the film.As an omnibus work, 1.3.6 has to be considered a failure, especially as the three films (Jang's amusing Sonagi Epilogue, Lee's poorly-received Mobius Strip, and Song's poetic Git) don't match, not just in length but in form, content, mood, style, and quality.But if Song betrayed the spirit of the omnibus project, he remained true to the needs of his film.In a year that has been lacking in unexpected discoveries, Git is an exciting find.
