Editorial Reviews

A British director and cast have taken an American classic written in 1871 and created an irresistible BBC mini-series with timeless appeal. In Little Men, Louisa May Alcott focused on the challenges faced by an adult Jo, the spunkiest of the four March sisters in her earlier novel Little Women. Now married and overseeing a boarding school for rapscallion boys in rural New England, our plucky heroine suddenly finds her cozy world in disarray. How she and her circle cope is the stuff of a satisfying story charmingly told. 3 hours on 2 DVDs.

I watched "Little Men" for 2 years on PAX TV when it originally aired and fell in love with this delightful, heartwarming family drama. Safe for the entire family to enjoy, "Little Men" will warm your heart with valuable lessons, charming anectdotes, and a house of boys and girls tumbling through life's many adventures.
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....

This series was based upon the classic Louisa May Alcott book "Little Men". Although it does move away from the book in certain ways, the series still brings the charm of Alcott's novel to the small screen. The scripts are well written, the acting superb, and the stories are timeless. This DVD, containing the first 4 episodes of the series, will be something to treasure and which can be shared with children and adults alike for many years to come.

I can't say enough about this series that unfortunately ran for only 2 seasons. I recently bought this two DVD set of the first 4 episodes, and the picture & sound quality are excellent. This series is well acted with good stories appropriate for the whole family. Although it is an extention of LM Alcott's work and includes invented characters such as Nick, the romantic interest for Jo, it seems realistic and in keeping with the flavour that Miss Alcott was trying to portray through her writings. The romance between them is very sweet and is in no way "over the top". It isn't one of those productions that leaves purists such as myself feeling betrayed by the presentation of the story or characters, and now I wouldn't want to be without those new characters! My favourite actors are Trevor Blumas who plays Nat and Robin Dunne as Franz Bhaer. The DVD includes bios of some of the characters and also there are extra features for those who have a DVD-ROM. It is interesting to note that one of the executive producers, Carl Binder, (who also produced Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman for 3 years), is Canadian as well as most of the actors/actresses. It seems to be a joint production between Canada and the United States. It is very much in the flavour of other outstanding Canadian productions such as Road to Avonlea by Sullivan Entertainment. Those of you who like those shows will definitely like this as well. I was also amazed when reading the bios, how much the teenagers have in common with one another in real life. They are a very athletic and musical group of individuals. Together they made an excellent team in this outstanding family show. My biggest disappointment of course is that there are not more episodes available on DVD. I'm presently ordering copies of this release for my friends.Read more ›

I watched the TV series Little Men when it was played on PAX TV a few years ago, and was very disappointed when they took it off the air. It was the first show I ever saw that had valuable lessons, but never anything harmful for young children to see. Although I always enjoyed Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, some episodes were inappropiate for young children, never so Little Men.
Anyone that views this show (and is a fan of the 1800s) will undoubtedly enjoy it immensely.

A Kid's Review on August 1, 2005
Format: DVD
My Nana showed me little women for the first time in May and I loved it. Then she told me that they had a sequal to it as a t.v sereis. I asked her if she would buy volume 1&2 (the only ones amazon carries) and I fell in love with them after the first time watching them. Even though they killed off Fritz Baher they make up for it when they introduce Nick Riley; the caretaker who takes an imediate liking to Jo and Jo to him. The boys and girls of Plumfield help Jo and Nick relize valuable lessons that they and everyone will keep with themselves forever. Also, the episodes that I have seen so far have nothing inapropriate for children. Overall, this is a great series that has you laghing, crying, and sitting on the edge of your seat. You will enjoy this for years to come.

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.

I watched this when it was on the PAX channel, and my whole family enjoyed it! It is a charming series, which includes romance, adventure, humor, a great cast, great clothing, and more! Based loosely on the Louisa May Alcott novel of the same name, it is a fun series you should enjoy whether you've read the books or not.

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!
