Parents, two young daughters, dog, belongings and horses head to Kansas
7 March 2005 | by teadubSee all my reviews

I saw the first 1.5 hours via a "no duplication" press release DVD. It's slow. Nice location shots (real snow !). Dogs used for wolf scene. Some very corny dialog such as when they start out for Kansas in their wagon (in those days, quite possibly their last meeting) and Ma's father says to his departing "girls" – "You have your mother's eyes". Er… great advice Dad. Very little tension or character depth beyond "good, nice people". An encounter with American Indians promised to be the first potentially engaging scene, but was interrupted by "TO BE CONTINUED" - (sorry !). Shaky camera/quick cutting used to simulate any real action scenes (crossing rivers etc.) Predictable, and inoffensive. Fans of the original series would have to be disappointed, but with the introduction of some interesting story lines, and edgier characters, it could have a future in series format. Personally, I would have liked to know what they ate, how they knew where they were, (beyond a shot of Dad holding an apparently non-functioning compass on top of a crude map), and why they seemed so unconcerned and comfortable even though there was snow and ice on the ground, with out today's weather proof clothing or subzero sleeping bags, partially covered in wet mud in a leaky wagon in high winds and pouring rain ! It's hard to live in America and not have a fascination for this period in American history, but this feels way too bland and simplistic to capture much more interest than a pack of your favorite chewing gum.
