Port Angeles, the town that Howard & Elizabeth Griffin (Chad Tyler & Angie Milliken) called from the "Occupational Hazard" is on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, across the Juan de Fuca Strait from Victoria, the capital of British Columbia.

This went over pretty big in Australia when it first aired, thanks mostly to the local cast and the fact it was plugged to death by the network beforehand. It's never been seen since, which should tell us something.
My key recollection (and this was eight years ago now) is that it contained the most appalling digital effects I have ever seen. It also featured the tasty Laura Vasquez (from Home and Away), but she went nowhere much after this. Good luck finding a copy - I think they probably destroyed the masters. Or at least they should have.
I enjoyed Jaws as both book and movie, so I thought I'd give Benchley's novel of The Beast a try. It wasn't bad, even if it was pretty much just Jaws revisited.
