5.0 out of 5 stars The Swiss Family Robinson, September 13, 2010

This review is from: The Swiss Family Robinson (DVD)
This "Swiss Family Robinson" tv series is the best ever and there will never be another that compares. Great cast, storylines and beautiful scenery. Throw in family values, drama, adventure, mystery and humor and you have one of the best "Family" shows ever made. Every episode is interesting and exciting. All 5 cast members seem as if they were meant to play those roles. The actors who portrayed the characters were Chris Wiggins (Johann, the father), Diana Leblanc (Elizabeth, the mother), Michael Duhig (Ernest, the eldest), Ricky O'Neill (Franz, the middle child), and Heather Graham (Marie, the youngest). It is a Canadian import, which maybe gives it a unique flavor and is one of the most popular tv shows ever from that country. The jungle scenes were filmed in Canada and the beach scenes in Jamaica, so it truly is island fare. I remember watching this show with my family on Friday nights at 7:00 on channel 12 from Montreal, as I grew up a few miles from the province of Quebec. I was in 7th grade when it premiered back in the Fall of '73 and liked the show from the very first episode. I couldn't wait to see the next one. The only regret is that it only lasted 1 season (for reasons unknown to me) with a 2nd season of reruns before it went into the U.S. market. It brings back good memories from childhood. When I saw it was on DVD I was really excited and couldn't wait to watch them again, as I hadn't seen them in 30 years. The episodes have been remastered and the quality is very good. This really is a show for the whole family and a purchase one will not regret!
