Enjoyable! This series offers a lot of entertainment.
18 March 2018 | by ahight-1See all my reviews

I spent a lovely St. Patrick's Day watching this series. The music, scenery, houses, and costumes are all very pretty. I loved the Irish music that's scattered throughout the episodes. Hearing the speech of the day was fun, too. The stories are pleasant and fun, and give a bit of insight into the issues and how such matters were dealt with at that time. It's got humerus points, poignant moments, and some outright sadness, but overall is a delightful way to spend time. One can escape to a time when things were easier.
