Very Well Done
11 July 2007 | by toro-hugsSee all my reviews

"Meadowlands is a sunny place!"

The words would give you an expectancy of a drab, happy little suburban drama - comedy but in truth it is so much more.

The characters are very well portrayed, the storyline well thought through and written.

The darkness of Meadowlands/Cape Wrath will draw you in and keep you watching, wanting to find out why all the people are as they are.

It's a very good watch, but go in prepared for some spine-chilling surprises.

There is never a moment where you aren't in suspense, or worried for a characters personal safety, you feel empathy for them, but at the same time, are wary of the darkness you can feel in their natures.

Meadowlands/Cape Wrath is a top watch for someone looking to be intrigued.
