North & SouthBy winnie (27 reviews) from Ellon , 03 Sep 2008Absolutely enthralling.
Still as good the second time round.
Nostalgia doesn't always ruleBy a customer from London , 22 Nov 2007I remembered this series so fondly but I'm now not sure it stands up to another viewing. Patrick Swayze is bouffant and gorgeous in his pre-Dirty Dancing days but it only merits viewing for the sheer soap-opera factor of it all.
a film to seeBy stuart gillespie from hereford , 04 Apr 2007what makes a good film is the story it tells and this film has it all ,great stars and a great story of friendship a good film to see
Families Torn ApartBy Jeffery Parkes from Argyll, Scotland , 21 Mar 2007This probably does for the American Civil War as 'Titanic' did for the sinking liner, but I find both of them entertaining and hugely enjoyable. John Jakes' 'North and South' is a sprawling, sweeping story of two families - one in the North, the other in the South - brought together by firendship and marriage, but torn asunder by the clash between the Union and Southern States. The battle scenes are impressive and give the feeling of planting the viewer in the middle. There's a strong desire to duck when the shell explodes near the camera. Throughout the series you are rooting for Orry Main and George Hazard, whilst thoroughly disliking the villains. My wife and I liked it when first shown on television and we like it still.
