You can't go wrong for ten bucks.
3 February 2011 | by (The San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

At least that's how much it was at Target in the TV series section. I took a chance on it, and wasn't too disappointed. After all, the price break down would make it less than a dollar an episode. Okay, that's not free, but it's about as close to being free as broadcast television is going to get on TV.

It's well shot. Decent enough production values. Not a bad watch, but it's chick-TV. Okay, a sexist comment, but it's the truth. That, and it's religious chick TV. The character Christy herself reminds me of some of the young women I grew up with; just as sugary and naive in a variety of ways, and also intellectually vapid on a certain level.

But, it is the Appalachians around the turn of the century, and things being what they were back then the series sticks close to the gist of what those times were like. Although I must say that the production values almost seemed over worked. The props, the color saturation, the accents, and acting itself seemed fairly overworked and almost exaggerated. But, the show is what it is, and if you're the target demographic for this thing (which admittedly I'm not), then it should entertain.

Overall a decent watch, but it's clear why this series was never picked up for a second season. An "A" for effort. The historical aspect alone makes almost worth seeing, but the series has a very saccharine flavor about it in spite of its thrust at historic accuracy.

Take it for what it is. Overworked religious pablum, but okay entertainment. Nothing more.
