These family secrets, and the turbulent emotions of Meggie's teenaged daughter Justine, create enough familial tension to fill The Missing Years with the kind of ripe, involving melodrama that fueled the original miniseries. Accepted on its own merits, this is a respectable, above-average TV production, bolstered by the fine performances of Chamberlian and especially Donohoe, who intelligently plays Meggie with warmth, inner torment, and plucky tenacity, making the role fully her own. The sweeping wall-to-wall score is excessively manipulative in its attempt to elevate The Missing Years to Gone with the Wind proportions, and some viewers may question the integrity of a plot (bearing no relation to Colleen McCullough's bestselling novel) that forces a noble priest to solve his dilemma with a vengeful fistfight. Still, this is an eminently watchable TV romance that can stand on its own, without the long shadow of its much-beloved predecessor. --Jeff Shannon
Richard Chamberlain was brilliant as usual, but Amanda Donahue as Meggie is not Thorn Birds.
This sequel departs from cannon of the original story so, one wonders if the creators actually viewed the original mini-series.
I'm not going to get verbose like some, I'll just say that this should have never been done.
I thought this poorly done in every way. A disappointment after watching the first one.Published 2 months ago by Mary L. Cooley
This sequel was truly awful. Except for Richard Chamberlain, all the supporting characters (including Meggie) were played by different actors. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Roberta V. Russo

This was a good movie but the empowering charisma between the two characters that was there in the original movie was not the same.Published 4 months ago by Patricia Ruggles
