4.0 out of 5 stars The Alternative EDEN ending 24 Aug 2007
I enjoyed this mini-series, finding it quite addictive to watch, despite the shoulder pads, perms, bizarre now-dated fashions and the way all the women woke each morning and exited the swimming pool with their make up perfectly in place! As with the previous reviews I agree it a pain that the final episode ends with "loose ends" but if you go to " " you will find out how they tied these up by re-shooting the final episode which wasn't included on this DVD. Well worth a watch in my opinion.

How wonderful for this rare but (ironically) perennially popular 22-part spin-off from the cult hit miniseries to be released on DVD.

Yes, the plots are absurd as is the fashion and the cast revel in camp excess, but that is precisely what makes it fun, and the show actually had a sense of humour about itself that would have - if it had continued - distinguished it from "Sons and Daughters", the only show with which it is vaguely comparable. It was unfortunately marketed as "Dallas Down Under" or the "Aussie Dynasty", but it was far wittier than either of those shows.

The show was apparently very successful overseas and it was initially planned to have a 5 year run, but its high budget precluded further series. That is a pity. Whilst it is doubtful that it could have sustained its camp wit for 5 years, it probably could have run for 3.

The one shame about this release - as of course has been noted by other reviwers - is that it does not include the wrap-up ending that was filmed after the cancellation, featuring radically new hairstyles for Rebecca Gilling and Peter Cousins, and which was shown to European audiences (it has also been used for all the Australian reruns, so I'm not sure why it is not included on the DVD). But really, we ought to be grateful that it was released on DVD at all!

I have been looking for some time now for this series. It is very old but remember it from child. Very good story. The only thing is there are some more have to find them.

I'd remembered the TV series through 'sentimental eyes' of youth - I
now realise, just a bit of time wasting so-called entertainment. Australia does so much better films....

It is a great story but I wish they put on the box how many episodes there are and which one you are going to watch.

There is nothing to say about the serie itself. Epic. Be prepared to be very frustrated when the last DVD abruptly ends .... That's right, there is no "ending". I remember having seen it on tv though. Why it is not on the DVD is a mystery I guess.
This spoils it. The image / sound quality is not always good.
