May be the best thing ever put on television
23 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the only television series I've reviewed on IMDb which I've given a 10 rating to, since it is the only one which compares with a great film in its quality. These dramatizations of short stories by British writers A. E. Coppard and H. E. Bates, dealing with love affairs set in the English countryside just after WW I, display excellent direction, meticulous and convincing period setting, and an almost astonishingly high level of acting in every role, major and minor, from beginning to end. Their view of life is a tragically bleak one -- don't come to them for the sort of heartwarming family stories you might have been prepared for by something like Lark Rise to Candleford -- but they do have what I consider the mark of great cinema: their impact on you is almost more like something in real life. The series abounds in the sort of unforgettable moments that great film can leave you with: for instance, the long closeup of the face of the placid, innocent ruined girl at the end of The Mill is something Thomas Hardy couldn't have bettered.
