But with the world’s most brilliant minds not knowing if moon-meets-Earth is days or decades away, Three Moons can relinquish the cloak of sci-fi and get straight to being a modestly charming show about people dealing with a mild epidemic of slightly accelerated fear-of-death complexes. And naturally it won’t be long until Laura, played with the kind of sad-eyed intelligence that is McGovern’s trademark, hooks up with Milford’s last seemingly calm person, boyishly handsome lawyer Mack McIntyre (Rob Boltin). In fact, there will probably be episodes in which the specter of the world’s demise is barely addressed amid all the witty banter, family problem solving and budding romances. And that’s fine with me. Three Moons may not be a revelation, but at least it’s not Revelation.
