In addition to the rambunctions children of the series, is the burgeoning relationship between Jo Bhaer and the new caretaker of Plumfield, Nick Riley. After the unexpected death of her husband Fritz, (which may alarm many L.M. Alcott fans) Jo finds herself torn between her past and her future. The addition of Nick Riley to the story-line, though a major change in the original plot of the novel, is pivotal to the series. He adds the charm, roughness, and tenderness of a man wrestling with his own past as he quickly falls in love with a woman of strength and courage unlike any he has ever known.
Anyone who purchases this series on DVD (the first 2 include the first 4 episodes) will undoubtedly enjoy it....
Anyone that views this show (and is a fan of the 1800s) will undoubtedly enjoy it immensely.
P.S. I am planning on sending a petition to BFS studious to tell them to put more of the series out. All little men lovers should consider doing this so we can have the series we love and we want to share with are children and grandchildren.
There are a few episodes I didn't care for (the Halloween episode, etc.), the very occasional swearing, and a few bits in which lying wasn't discouraged as it should have been, but overall it's good.
These first four episodes are very sweet and satisfying. . . . "Changes" introduces Nick Riley, the new caretaker, and the first girl student, Nan. "Quarantine" is about the measels epidemic that keeps the school under a quarantine, and the bravery of those willing to do what they could to help (a very touching episode). In "Thanksgiving," Bess (Amy & Laurie's daughter) arrives at the Plumfield school. Will Bess ever be happy at Plumfield? In "Tough Crimes" an old friend of Dan's decides he wants to take Dan out West with him--but at what cost?
I wish the whole series were on DVD!
