Excellent!
7 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

To me, this is one of the best shows ever. I'm sad that it wasn't on longer & that I wasn't able to catch the original run through in its entirety due to being away at college, where there wasn't cable. However, I'm now able to see all the episodes & it's renewed my enjoyment of the show.

This series featured some of Canada's best acting talent and was a real showcase for them.

This show is historically accurate as well and really brought to light many of the things that pioneers had to go through in Canada's harsh, yet beautiful, landscape. It also brought forth that, despite some people holding on to class, people worked together and, eventually, most people realised that we're all the same and that we're all equal.

I really like how the show treated all people, no matter their creed, race or what-have-you, the same. No one was prejudiced against, and stereotypes were done away with.

This show is something that everyone can enjoy, a true family show, and that is truly lacking these days. If I was able to get DVDs of this show, it's one that I would most definitely spend my money on.
