Jake T. Austin,
In Germany it was screened in four parts in the pre-Christmas season. I would not miss one minute of it. An excellent cooperation of the different TV-companies. The participation of actors from different European countries makes a good change from the US-productions. Even as a grown up I have video-taped it as a sweet memory for a close-to-the-book filming, convincing acting by the actors of Tom and Huck and the funny comments the narrator makes. Their acting was totally realistic, natural and not at all exaggerated, except for the part of Becky. They children-cast capture all what is important at such age in a small town. Worth watching for persons of all ages.
