Excellent tense dramaBy a customer from England , 04 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]For those of you who actually read the excellent novels by John Jakes, some points made in the books are somewhat watered down to keep the whole thing suitable for a modern day audience. However, I think that on the whole the adaptation is very good. As a drama this still had me on the edge of my seat even after all these years (the series was made in 1985) and every episode's cliffhanger ending makes you want to watch the next one. If you like history and costume drama then please avoid any reviews that say 'avoid'. Granted, it's a bit of a commitment (18 hours in all) but for most of you I would seriously doubt that you would regret renting these titles.

Frankly my dear, I do give a damnBy a customer , 13 Aug 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI have really loved this series and so pleased to receive series 3 to maintain the pace.
Having been previously to so many of the places where the series was set is intriguing. Charleston and Savvanah are so recognisable and the Main plantation can still be visited in all it's glory, albeit under it's real name. Seeing its destruction in the last scenes is a marvel to the director. Like so many other viewers I am quite saddened by the loss of so many characters but especially the late demise of my favourite. What a way to go?
