I lived during that time but was too young to totally understand the world outside of my small existence.

This series was commissioned by the BBC to commemorate the 70th outbreak of WW II. There are three seasons in the series, and the focus is on the lives of several girls who join the British Land Army during the war. The stories center around interesting and familiar themes such as relationships, family, loyalty, and betrayal. Of all the seasons, my personal favorite is Season One as it had a good balance between the comic and the tragic, and the casting was also much better in Season One (although some characters appear in all three seasons). Nevertheless, the series is engaging, although by all accounts not completely faithful to the details of the period.

Season One centers around four girls, i.e. Nancy, Joyce, Annie, and Bea. Nancy (Summer Strallen) and Joyce (Becci Gemmell) are the new arrivals at the beginning of the series, arriving at Hoxley Manor where they meet the imperious Lady Hoxley (Sophie Ward) and her laidback husband (played by Inspector Lynley's Nathaniel Parker). Nancy is not used to the rough life at first, but eventually gets into a rhythm while also getting into trouble; Joyce pines for her RAF pilot husband; and, Annie (Christine Bottomley) is an overprotective older sister to younger sis Bea (Jo Woodcock). All four girls are supervised by Esther Reeves (Susan Cookson) and live at the farm owned by Farmer Finch (Mark Benton) and his son, Billy. The themes of marital infidelity, teen pregnancy and marriage, desertion, etc are the highlights of this season.

Season Two sees the departure of Annie and Nancy, and more's the pity as their storylines were engaging in Series One.

I am mesmerized by the period in and around WWII. I lived during that time but was too young to totally understand the world outside of my small existence. I first became aware of what a land girl was in the series "Foyle's War". It is a fresh and enlightening story of girl's from different non-farm environments coming together to do their job to keep the country fed while the boys were away fighting to keep them safe. Great purchase and worth the investment.

The reviews were varied and I decided to take a chance. If you aren't looking for historical clarity and just an entertaining story this is good. Not brilliant, but entertaining.

This is a soap opera, and not remotely associated with any real historic facts. Do not mistake it for an historical drama. The characters are trite, the plots are silly and often obvious, and the series is dreadfully over-acted (I thought ham was rationed during the war!). It is also very politically correct. Any comparison to Foyle's War, an excellent mystery series set in the same period, is grossly misleading. Land Girls is just the latest in a series of programs from both the BBC and PBS that rewrite history in order to promote a social agenda. History should be presented as it was, not how some think it should have been. Otherwise, how will anyone learn from the mistakes society has made in the past? Watch this if you are in the mood for a soap. If you want realistic historical drama, look someplace else.

A DRAMA, not documentary, done expertly by BBC to honor the service women gave in WWII. It takes a rap for changes, such as costume color, but the experience of seeing a stunning filming of a very dramatic portrayal of the times is well worth the liberty taken for the sake of aesthetic license. The spirit of the times and of the ladies is there. There is an episode that shows almost all of the unpleasantries that also goes along with wartime. One episode continues into the next.

Of course viewers can recognize that not every soldier and civilian lived a life exactly like the characters of this fictional presentation. One uncaring Yank does not make an army of such. As in the wonderful series "Foyle's War", the episodes offer glimpses into the 40's time, and a taste of the home front war. It is sometimes so spectacular in visual imagery that one forgets it is wartime. The acting is spot on. Costumes convincing, sets true. You will be enriched, enlightened, see romance and humor, as well as suffer the losses felt by characters. The writing is authentic enough to keep this war gals' story away from the column of `chick flic'. It's home front reality, scripted as fiction..

NO SUBTITLES OR CC, or bonus materials.
Land Girls Series 1-5 episodes. I recommend you watch them in order.
Land Girls Series 2-5 more episodes, each with their own main plot, but all carry over from the last series and have continuing issues and cast.
