Best Family Series!
9 April 2005 | by rohlandSee all my reviews

Dolphin Cove was one of the best family series ever aired. Its themes appeal to all: the love for animals, the intelligence of dolphins, the devastating consequences of losing a parent, the play between Australian versus American, the contrast of new and traditional, city versus the "bush"... An American researcher settles in Austrailia with his family to study dolphins. His wife has recently died in an auto accident which leaves his young daughter unable to speak. The older son and the daughter face challenges when they attend a private Australian school. The father faces challenges in dealing with local ways and with people who have selfish motives in training the dolphins. A visit from the American grandparents also stirs up trouble. But the ending is perfect, very heart-warming. We actually viewed this on television when we were living in Egypt and play the videos over and over again. I wish it were known well enough to come out on DVD.
