Format: DVD
McLeod's Daughters is an Australian soap opera that has played on WE (Women's Entertainment) TV for the last couple of years up until a few months ago when they decided to discontinue showing it. It is now at the end of its 6th season in Australia and WE had played seasons 1-3. Of course, being a soap opera, it is addictive, and not being able to watch the rest of the seasons is killing a lot of the fans who don't have region free DVD players (or $80 to fork over per season).

The plot at the beginning of the first season is basically two half-sisters (Claire and Tess) who have lived apart for most of their lives (same father, different mothers) come together to save Claire's ranch after their father dies. Claire has lived on the ranch all her life and Tess has lived in the big city with her mother most of her life. Tess, being from the big city, is not too keen on living on a ranch, but she helps her sister, and ends up staying at the ranch to help run it.

Along with the sisters there are other characters who liven up the place, as only soap opera characters can do. There's the two brothers, Alex and Nick, who help run their nearby ranch and who become love interests for just about any girl who is on the show. There's Meg, and her wild daughter Jodi, who help at the ranch. Another ranch help, Becky, who has a troubled past, but is a hard worker. And Terry, a ranch hand at Alex and Nick's ranch, who has an on-again, off-again, relationship with Meg. There are other regulars who have come and gone over the course of the six seasons, but those are most of the main ones from season 1.

The actors in this series are very good, and as we all know, many famous, well-renowned actors have started on soap operas. If they have been in anything else in the U.S.

IT IS RARE FOR ME TO WATCH A SHOW FROM THE VERY FIRST EPISODE AND BE HOOKED, BUT THIS SHOW DID IT! WE CHANNEL RAN THE SERIES THROUGH IT'S THIRD SEASON, BUT THEN ABRUPTLY YANKED IT, I GUESS TO MAKE ROOM FOR ALL THOSE HIGHLY ENTERTAINING (KIDDING) BRIDES ON STEROIDS! CANNOT BELIEVE FROM ALL I HAVE READ THAT IT HAS TAKEN THIS LONG FOR MCLEOD'S DAUGHTERS ON DVD TO HIT THE US, BUT I AM SO GLAD IT IS FINALLY HAPPENING! IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BECOME ADDICTED TO A TV SHOW, THEN DON'T BUY THIS SET. BUT IF YOU WANT TO SEE A REALLY ORIGINAL AND ENTERTAINING SHOW, GET THIS SET FAST! MY ONLY FEAR IS THAT I'LL BUY THIS SEASON AND THE DISTRIBUTORS WON'T MAKE THE REST OF THE SEASONS AVAILABLE--THEN I WON'T EVER FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS!

If you want to see how women can handle a ranch in the Austrailian West, this program will be one you won't want to miss. The characters are strong, focused on succeeding in running the property, and are learning how to take one day at a time. Conflicts are eventually worked out as all of them learn how to operate in a different kind of terrain. Tess, the sister who left when she was 5 with her mother, is urbanized, educated and not sure how to fit in. Clare, the sister who stayed, is tough, determined yet willing to negotiate if it means she can keep the place. The sisters learn how to work together while working with the three other women on the ranch: a mother (Meg) and daughter (Jody) and friend from the nearest city who came to the Ranch to start a new life.

I love this series. It is heartfelt. Nothing on American TV is this catching. Its about two sister who were seperated young and reunite with each other after their father dies. The two sisters are very different and the series follows their growing love for each other and the land that ties them together. Of course there are more characters and some good looking Men. This series makes me long to vist Australia. The landscape is beautiful and the actors do a great job making the characters seem like you know them and feel their emotions. Love it! Only wish a station would pick up the series agian. I will buy the next season as soon as it comes out.

I love this show and I am so glad to be able to get it on DVD in US region code. I cannot believe no US station has picked up this show since WE dropped it. I've been reading the recaps online but it's not the same. I am looking forward to purchasing all seasons as they become available. This is a truly enjoyable show to watch. I recommend it to all.

I love the fact that I can watch McCleods anytime I want now and theres no commercials! I also like haveing the commentaries and the movie at the end. I got hooked on the show when it was playing on Womens Entertainment and was very upset when they stopped showing it. I can hardly wait until they come out with the other seasons.
