Storyline

Based on Banjo Paterson's poem "Man From Snowy River", this series takes place in Paterson's Ridge, a small town set in the mountains near Melbourne, during the late 19th century. It tells the story of Matt McGregor, one of the richest and most influential man in town, as well as widower father of three children: Colin, who's the town preacher, Rob and Danni, the tomboy youngest daughter. Unresolved sexual tension comes in the shape of Matt's childhood independent, free-spirited friend, the recently widowed Kathleen O'Neil, who's returned to Paterson's Ridge with her son after having spent many years in England.

Great series
10 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was a good family, which is rare. Except for a few episodes its the kind of show the whole family can watch without feeling embarrassed.

I remember watching it years ago and loving it. Josh Lucas was quite obviously my favorite as well as Guy Pierce.

My favorite character apart form Josh Lucas' was Danni McGregor and i was sorry there were not more episodes with her. After the first actress left, i found the new one to be a bit over the top and occasionally screechy and immature which was very different form the head-on- her-shoulders mature version played by the previous actress. Their portrayals of the same character made it seems like a completely new person and not even a very nice one. It definitely was not a Jessicas Bowman-Erika Flores situation (Dr Quinn Medicine Woman) where i liked both portrayals of Colleen equally. In this case I never warmed to the new actress.

The series also got a bit stale after Josh Lucas' character's story was complete (which was the entire basis of most of the series) and his character was no longer on the show. After that it seemed to veer off track a lot. old characters left, new ones came on whom were not as easy to identify or like because they arrived so late on the scene. The new story lines seemed to be trying way too hard.

All in all i loved it but perhaps it should have ended after the Josh Lucas story was complete. Another sad thing about this series is the inability to find it anywhere, even though i'm sure it has a fan following.
