Seasons 1,2,3 all 5 star.. only 4 drops off.

Season 2 of Lark Rise to Candleford is great just like seasons 1 and 3. 4 because of the loss of Fergus Drysdale as Laura's father combined with the condensed number of episodes with a finale that compressed so much that could have been spread across the 6 episodes available (instead of some of the worst episodes of the show), Season 5 is less but still must be watched to see how they wrap up the storyline. Overall the show is one of the best stories I've watched in a long time. The story of the poor and working class in mid 1800's England is heart warming. Nothing in these shows that you have to send your children away from, or would offend anyone. Simple good old story telling of how the bonds of love and friendship held together these old communities that worked so hard and faced so many adversities yet managed to prevail. I was touched by many, amused, and generally entertained by a show I simply wish had gone on for many more seasons. But what there is of it is a great watch, so soak it up because you'll find little to compare. I myself see it as a combination of Anne of Green Gables, Downton Abbey and a touch of Poldark. Loved it.
