Editorial Reviews

Thorn Birds Collector's Set (Repackage/Viva)

Winner of six Emmy® awards, four Golden Globe awards and countless nominations, The Thorn Birds is the second-highest-rated miniseries ever … and it's easy to see why. Featuring an all-star and award-winning cast - including Richard Chamberlain, Rachel Ward, Barbara Stanwyck, Bryan Brown, Jean Simmons, Barry Corbin, Mare Winningham, Piper Laurie, Christopher Plummer and more - this epic drama set against the sweeping backdrop of the Australian outback tells of the taboo romance between a beautiful woman, Meggie, and an ambitious priest, Ralph de Bricassart, whose dedication to the church is greater than his desire for young Meggie - but barely. Spanning five decades, from a ranch in Australia to the Vatican in Rome and back, this seductive saga is based on Colleen McCullough's bestselling novel about an unattainable and forbidden love. Re-live the drama and romance or see it for the first time right here … right now.

Since I've already reviewed and bought both of these as separate items, I'm not gonna repeat anything about each show (see individual reviews for that). I will just rehash what I have all along. Despite its missing pieces from the book, the Original is still 5 star material. The "in betweener" is only worth it's value because it is a disc copy (as opposed to a tape copy). My advice, buy the Original separately, and read the book to get the "real missing years". If you are building a library of "ALL Richard Chamberlain", then buy both or this combo. But be prepared to be disappointed in what the alleged "Missing Years" has to offer (again see separate review). By the way for those who pay attention to cosmetic details, in most places that sell this combo, The Missing Years is in a thin case "attached" to the box of the original while the separate release is in a see through normal size case. The notes on both programs are the same as on the separate copies.

Always wanted to see this movie and am glad that I finally did. Good movie, well worth the price. Wish that I did not buy or watch "the Missing Years" - too many discrepancies as it was made well after the original, different actors, Richard aged since the first and looks so much older than he did at the end of part 4 of the original when he should have been younger...

Forget this rip-off on the "Thorn Birds" see the original and read the book it is based on. This mid-qual (not a sequal - not a prequal - but the years in between) was mis-conceived and badly cast. Other than Richard Chamberlin replaying the lusty priest Father Ralph - most of the other main characters are played by different actors (and unfortunately mis-cast) than the original. Amanda Donoghoe is especially grating as Meggy and Bryan Brown is very missed as Luke O'Neill, Meggy's one-time husband.

The Missing Years is awful. In the original, the kids appeared not knowing Father Ralph at all. But, in the Missing years, kids have met Father Ralph. In the original, at the end, Father Ralph said that he regreted that he did not choose Meggie. But, he did tell Meggie that he wanted to give up being a priest to be with her. So, there are many things that do not make sense. But, overall, it is a great love story. It touched my heart. I recommend it.

This `80's TV series, based on Colleen Mc Collough's bestselling novel, which became a phenomenal hit among TV audiences worldwide derives its thematic concerns from prevailing topical issues surrounding the Papal and Church - which was, at that juncture, surrounded by controversy arising from the illegitimate conduct involving paedophilia by Roman Catholic priests taking advantage of and misusing their position as religious authorities by committing what can rightfully be claimed to be rape against a minor, which gave birth to the notion of Roman Catholic priests being torn between a marriage to God and their natural inclination to satisfy the undeniable biological desire for members of the female gender and committing themselves in such a fashion to marriage with a kindred soul - from which arose the notion of a thorn bird that deliberately searches for a thorn that will inflicted the most excruciating pain upon itself when it impales itself on the thorn while singing the most exquisite song to surpass the song of the nightingale and creating such an exquisite experience that even God himself in Heaven pauses to listen and smile.Read more ›

I do not care what anyone says or thinks about Richard Chamberlain. I have ALWAYS loved his acting and he is the most "chisled", beautifully open, intelligent, self-actualized actor that has come along in a VERY, VERY long time! He is dedicated to his art and it shows in his work. Now in his prime, he is still a joy to listen to as he has learned to live, love, and let go. These movies (especially Part One) were strong and emotion-filled. He again surpassed expectations in "Thorn Birds: The Missing Years" in spite of an entirely new supporting cast. For anyone who is a true romantic, these movies are memorable and emotional charged and will keep you glued to your seat!

The video is fair and the audio is quite poor. The content was and still is wonderful.

Thank you for having this DVD's I have been trying to find them. The TV used to show this show once a year, but since all the new [...] has come out they dont want to show the old movies. This is one of best love stories that has ever been created, next to gone with the wind, which I have yet to purchase. The condition of the DVD's is great,it took me a while to operate my new Bose system, but once I figured it out, it was like being there again. I hope to purchase more DVD's in the future and this is where I will look first, thanks again.
