"I am not a big fan of tv in general but this series has captured my attention like no other. Each day I look forward to 1 hour of uninterrupted adventure when I watch this show. I have bought this series in its entirety and when I am done watching it once I will watch it all over again, it is that brilliant. Not only is the scenery the BEST I have ever seen on a show, but it makes me laugh out loud and cry all in the same show. I have grown quite attached to each and every character on this gem of a show. I have just come back from Scotland for the second time, and this show lets me feel like I am still there for at least 1 hour a day. It makes me want to buy a second house in the highlands of scotland, just outside of Edinburgh. I don't think I am so different from many of you out there, and I can't recommend this show highly enough. To those of you who long for a beautifully written and filmed adventure, this is the series you have been waiting for. I know it has been that for me and much more."
A bittersweet season

"As a diehard Monarch fan, I will gobble up as much of it as I can get! But I wouldn't claim season 5 as their best. As ever though, the scenery is astounding and the characters always intriguing.
Not to give too much away, Duncan makes a quizzical (read: poor) dating choice, Molly gets swept up in a rollercoaster of love of her own, Paul makes another appearance with a difficult request, and Archie and Lexie face maybe the biggest, toughest decision of their relationship. Of course, some new faces make their entrances, and most importantly, a few dearly loved faces make their exits.
So for those (like me) who love it all, this collection is a must-have. But for those who prefer to cherry-pick the series, I'd recommend seasons 1 and 3 as the best of all."
Where are they going with this?

"Well I enjoyed the last 4 series, but I am getting a little leery with the changes. They are losing there characters and I am losing interest fast. Its hard to fall in love with the characters that add so much to the drama, and then the writers are taking this to a whole other series."
