Editorial Reviews

In this season of MEERKAT MANOR, the Whiskers are a house divided. Splintered by the bitter rivalry of a powerful pair of sisters, the new families are locked in a struggle for dominance and survival in the Kalahari. Under the leadership of their matriarch Rocket Dog, the Whiskers are still battling against their arch enemies the Commandos and now their own sister Maybelline and her mob of rebellious subjects - the Aztecs. It's an archetypal tale of family feuds and fierce factions, one which threatens to undo them all. Whatever the outcome, one thing is certain - life in the Manor will never be the same.

It's fitting that Season 4 (considering how Season 3 ended) sort of rebrands itself as "The Next Generation," because it is really both metaphorically and literally a new start--so that means if you haven't seen previous seasons, you can still follow the action and start here, though I would highly recommend the other seasons. Meerkat Manor is, was, and continues to be a one-of-a-kind show.

This season, the narrator is Stockard Channing, and while she is adequate, I prefer Sean Astin's narration (Seasons 1-3). This season is not as quite as heightened (or frankly, powerful--as Seasons 3 and 2) but it is a strong addition to the canon. On one hand, viewers who felt a little...turned off...by how depressing and difficult it sometimes was to watch previous seasons, can find that the mood is lighter here overall (though darker moments abound.) On the other hand, I found the various episodes uneven--some strong, some weaker--as a whole though, it adds up to a good season. There are both new and familiar faces that come to the forefront: Sophie, Rocket Dog, Wilson, and Maybeline being the most interesting and endearing IMO.

At its best, it's still one of my favorite shows on TV (I watch a variety of shows; this is the only "nature/animal" show I watch.) But for various reasons, the level of connection and involvement I felt was not as strong with these new "stars" than the meerkats of past seasons. It should be kept in mind that it took three seasons to fully bring out the full power and arc of the series and "characters" (meerkats) of the past.

We first watched these meerkat families on nature television. My mom fell in love with Flower and the rest of the gang. She found herself deeply involved in their lives; whether their pups lived, who was fighting with who, rival gang raids, etc. The creatures are delightful and great entertainment for the whole family. I purchased the entire series for my mom for Christmas and she watches her meerkats over and over again. They are cute and precious and it's easy to fall in love with them. Fantastic show!

Not everyone is going to like the Meerkat Manor series, but anyone who is even slightly an animal person will get hooked. Who knew these little guys had such distinct personalities? And they truly show us what's involved in being part of a family and the hard work and endurance it takes along the way. Start at the begin, give them a chance, and "The Whiskers" family and their rival clans at Meerkat Manor will (most likely) win you and your family over.

A reality shows that’s actually real, “Meerkat Manor” puts to shame all of those pseudo-survival, celeb-sensationalized series that don’t deserve to be called ‘reality’...actually, “Meerkat Manor” needs no such comparison, and can easily stand on its own merit. Despite the series having ended years ago, I find myself still thinking about Flower and her extended family, I’m grateful to be able to watch this show now from start to finish, and to see all of our beloved meerkats live again.

By the series’ second half, we’re all familiar with the research project, and don’t need the five-minute reminder which allows for more story in each episode; also the TV rating/disclaimer gets upped from G to PG allowing for a truly uncensored look at the very intimate and very real lives of these amazing creatures who have found their way into our hearts from the beginning. I always cry pretty much all through season 3 when we lost so many of them from Carlos, to Flower’s selfless sacrifice, to (Wilson and) Mozart’s tragic romance. Though I followed the series into its final season initially, I don’t remember having seen the very last episode (season 4) when it originally aired, and finally did in re-runs; Rocket Dog’s survival and strength of leadership was mind-blowing.

So intriguing is how vastly different meerkat society is from our own and how their daily life-and-death struggles make so many of our own human problems seem small. By the same token, however, despite all our advances, we are still living in “tough times” and it often makes me wonder if we are really any different or any better off than they are, which is why we the viewers can so easily relate to their everyday lives.

Love Meerkat Manor. So sorry this series didn't continue. My granddaughter and myself enjoyed it so much. I have all the DVDs and we can watch it anytime. The struggles of the Meerkats can keep you on the edge of your seat. A great family series that should be viewed over and over again.

I watched all the televised shows so I knew what I was getting. In my opinion all households should add this to their video library especially if they have children of any age. Some very sad places due to death of a Meerkat, kleenex time for sure. Just a wonderful series.
