Movie Reviews

Beneath the Gloss Some Real Class
Doug - Haydn Fan | California | 05/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Monarch of the Glen, having finished as a series in Great Britian, is trickling out slowly on DVD to the States. I have seen the fourth series thanks to our Canadian cousins, and can assure viewers the series continues to feature clever thematic writing to go along with the outstanding cast and unsurpassed scenery. The almost effortless merging of several plot lines continues to move each Episode along. The show's writers have shown a willingness to move the story in different directions, while most of the fine cast of regulars are starting to open out their roles. Particularily impressive has been the symbolic expansion through the wolves project - one does not expect this degree of art from a television series.
Frankly one has to go back to the days of Brideshead Revisited for a television show of such richness."
Beautiful Series and Terrific Cast!

"I have watched the first two or three 'series' to date, and this show is absolutely spectacular. The cast of Monarch is superb! The plots are fun and easy on the mind. Probably the best part of the show is the location itself.
The shows stars Alastair Mackenzie as Archibald 'Archie' Horatio Hector MacDonald, also starring, from "The Good Life or Good Neighbors (depending)" is Richard Briers as Archie's dad (series 1-3), other cast regulars include Alexander Morton, Julian Fellowes, Dawn Steele, Susan Hampshire, and the hilarious Hamish Clark as Duncan!
If anything will make you want to visit Scotland, it's this show!
What I love best about this series and ones from England are that the 'seasons' are so short. Some shows are 6 episodes total and some are maybe 10 epsiodes, for the entire 'season'.
It sure beats sitting through 20-24 episodes of American television shows, which tend to drag on and on just to get to the season end.
Please check out this fun little show and I think you'll be very surprised at how brilliant it is!"
The Beginning of the End...
Michael A | Bern, Swizterland | 05/02/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The passing of Hector at the end of Season 3 was also the death of this delightful and endearing series. The writing and direction in Season 4 is unpredictable and the characters lose their quirky, lovable shine as they constantly act in ways that are contrary to the characters we grew to know in Seasons 1-3, often with little rhyme or reason. It begins to feel as if the writers and director had not actually watched the first 3 seasons.

From Season 4 onward, there are several new characters and story arcs and the series becomes a completely different show. Season 4 is the transition to the "new" Monarch of the Glen that is seasons 5-7 and a rocky, troubled transition it is.
Monarch of the Glen - Series Four

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I watched this on TV in the UK and the series is not actually completed on the DVD series. Most unfortunate. We are left high and dry because of the lack of the last (possibly) two or three episodes. Such a shame for a great and repeatable series.
