Great Television
28 March 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful show; educational, entertaining, lively, well-acted, and one you could easily watch alone or with your whole family.

The basic premise concerned a scottish family who emigrated to Canada during the early 1800's. The characters were sympathetic and well-rounded; the episodes were well-written and interesting, with just the right dashes of occasional humor, suprise or suspense, etc.

The Campbells was one of the major bright spots for me during the 80's and I've been hoping for years that the show will come out on tape. If and when it does, I would strongly recommend it to anyone as a worthwhile viewing experience.
