Synopsis

From early retirement right up to the pulling of the plug, 21st Century seniors are partying like it’s 1969. Imagine: no work, no pregnancy and a full array of Medicare-subsidized pharmaceuticals.  It’s the Boomer dream!

The show’s host couple enters heaven, suspecting their son pulled the plug…to get his hands on Dad’s vintage Corvette. They don’t seem to mind. Instead, the couple fondly remembers Pelican Roost, a very active, full-service retirement community.
