Great series--shamefully overpriced here
Katherine of Amazon | New England, USA | 07/30/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This series deserves FIVE STARS, but the price asked for it here is nothing short of egregious--that's the only reason the program is getting demerits from me.
Head over to sullivanboutique.com, the original producers of the series, and grab yourself the first two seasons for less than what they are asking here for the first season alone.
Some other distributor has scarfed up the rights to seasons three, four and five, I have heard, and supposedly they will be available in the fall of 2008 at some retailers, both brick and mortar and online.
I wish AMAZON would put them up for pre-order (at a more acceptable price than they're offering for the first two seasons, of course).
Anyway, for those interested in the series, it's a heartwarming family program, made in Canada, about a young widow and her children going through considerable trial and tribulation during the Great Depression in a Canadian mining town. There's a tough-as-nails Granny, cute kids, assorted "local flavor" town characters, and a storyline that keeps you riveted. Great costuming and sets, too. No cussin' or naughty bits on display, so it can be watched by the kiddies and those family members on a day excursion from the convent or monastery!
This really is some fine family programming--but don't pay this much for it. If you're rich and can afford to throw your money away, buy it from the source and send the money you've saved to a charity aiding the poor.
You can do much better on the price than this."
