Inspired by the Two Part Swedish Saga
5 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one season series was inspired by the two part Swedish theatrical film saga of poor farmers coming to America to avoid famine and an authoritarian regime, released in the US as "The Emmigrants," and "The New Land." It was not unusual for TV to cash in on the success of theatrical movies. Some like MASH used the same characters, some like "Alias Smith and Jones" flattered through imitation ("Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"). The TV series, "Tyhe New Land," was somewhat in between. It did not use the characters from the films, but it used the setting and general idea. Also the films it was modeled on did well in the Us as foreign films go, but they were not the popular hits the other two films mentioned were. I remember this series being a far above average drama, and not overly sentimental in the manner of "Little House on thePrairie." I suspect it did not have enough action to interest fans of traditional westerns.
