Return to Eden complete series-uncensored.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Return to Eden - Complete Series - Uncensored Collector's Edition [DVD]  (DVD)
I have returned to "Eden"!, i did buy the follow up series first of 22 episodes as i watcthed it somthing dawned on me this wasn't the 1983 origional. So, i quickly ordered the ist one i'm glad i did it is compelling as when i first saw it on my televison in 1983.
Eden is the Dallas of Australia with plenty of schemmimg, wine and large shoulder pads, rich women, dastardly deads, bad deals and swimming pools. "OH! don't we love it?", Jilly is the JR Ewing and Stephanie Harper is the Bobby Ewing.
I suppose really "Eden" is a thing you like or a thing you dislike just watching the camera showing a close up everytime of changing expressions clinches the deal for me.
This film is a must for all things past and for collecters too. I stongly recommend this DVD, go on buy it you won't be disapointed i promise you will feel nostalgic and, have a good by the fireside piece of excellent entertainment.

My sister is wanting to buy this dvd and after reading your review, I just wanted to check that this is definitely the original 1983 dvd, as she was about to buy one of the others, but to me, they look like remakes.

Hello JoBettyBoop Poppy Here thanks for replying to my review. Yes they are both the origional series but as i said i bought the follow up series of 1986 first but realized i should of bought the 1983 mini series first.
I was like you confused as which to buy first but i assure you if you buy the mini series first the 1983 version this is the start of the brilliant story. After the mini series finished in 1983 they made a follow up series in 1986 of 22 episodes carrying on from the 1983 version.
I would buy them both and watch the 1983 one first then you will have ready the follow on series. They are both the origionals and great story lines .
Happy watching? Poppy.

i watched the series in summer of 1985 then the 22 episode in summer of 1986. and i must say it will bring back memoires to me when rebecca comes back to eden after being out in a boat and suddnely being pushed over and attacked by crocodiles the evil jenny was beind the accident. but she returned years later with her plastic surgeon who helped her to get back to life afer the terrible accident in the boat. thanks for reassuring me that this is the orginal series that i watched when i watched when i was twelve years old in Ireland. i hate remakes of these classics movies the always say the original and best it was a cant the had with with kellogs corn flakes in the 80s and 90s

Hello Poppy here yes indeed they are the origional, i'm glad you found my review helpfull. When you come to watch "Return to Eden" you will find that the dastedly evil lady is called Jilly not Jenny.
Hope you enjoy the series as i have?
Kindest regards. Poppy

Hello Mr. D. A. Evens as far as i know they are both the same but stretched out into 22 episodes. When it was shown on english tv as i remember the contents are the same. Firstly i bought the 22 episodes which i realized was the follow on so i quickly ordered the 1983 to watch first. Still brilliant after all these years i watch it again and again. Do you know there is something that has just sprung to mind with the origional series i'm sure Ringo Star made an appearance in it also the first part was Stephanie Harper was played by a different actress before the croc. insident. Thats what i thought when watching again i maybe wrong what do you think? hope that has helped? Poppy.
