Dr. Michaela 'Mike' Quinn:
I was born on February 15, 1833, in Boston, Massachusetts, the last of five children - the four before me all girls. My father, being a man of science, firmly believed that the odds were to finally dictate the birth of a long awaited son. He would be named Michael... I was named Michaela.

Looking for an emotional roller coaster? Here you go!
I didn't start watching this show until the second season. I was instantly hooked, and I regretted terribly that I hadn't started watching from the beginning. I was disappointed with the recasting of two characters, but these things happen.
Other than that, the casting is excellent. Jane Seymour, of course, is always an excellent actress, full of poise and grace. Best of all, this show uses *actual* races to play the represented races (e.g., Native Americans play Native Americans, Hispanics play Mexicans, Chinese play Chinese, etc.)!
This show has tugged on my glad heart strings, has made me cry, angry, and has made me long for more. The acting sucks you in, the storyline keeps you coming back for more.
I disagree with those who have compared this to Little House on the Prairie, but it stands alone just fine.
