Kaydan Christian A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
Rosie Searle It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
Marva It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
sonshinesister I was so captured by the characters I didn't want to stop watching it. It is just wonderful. brings out many different emotions. Nothing phony about it. Very believable story, captivating. I was compelled to watch the series. My friend is watching it now, only on season 3...then she said a sign came on the TV saying it was being removed from NETFLIX tomorrow, March 31st.....Will it come back on Netflix???? I have been having so much fun watching it again with her.....I HATED IT WHEN HECTOR DIED....I had to stop watching it for a few days. It hurt me to lose him.Anyways, I could go on and on.....I want to live with the family in Glenbogle.... Those characters stole my heart.Regards, June Kennedy
ron-phillips087 It is great to have a series in which there is minimal violence, no ridiculous language, and virtually no sex--how refreshing for a change! The scenery has already been noted elsewhere as spectacular, and as one of the stars. While I agree whole-heartedly with this, it is the acting which impresses me. Alastair Mckenzie does a superb job of portraying a suave Londoner who is suddenly thrust into a job he neither wants nor knows how to manage. However, (and you can see this most clearly when viewing the whole series, one episode after another) Mckenzie manages to convey that here is a man who grows from being a "fish-out-of-water" to being the LAIRD of Glenbogle. Mr. Mackenzie does it almost imperceptibly by degrees. Great work!The rest of the original cast is equally strong. It is indeed too bad that most of the principal characters left over the seasons.
N Welch This doesn't contain spoilers... The only thing I will hint at about future episodes is what you can see for yourself: some actors and actresses left the show. I was really drawn in by episode one. The character of Archie was very endearing. His older brother was supposed to inherit the glen and the castle, but something happened. After years away from home he has returned. As the new laird he has about 30,000 acres (as I remember) and a huge debt. Many other endearing characters complete the cast for the first few seasons. However, the cast members that I most grew to like have left the show over the course of series three, four and five. After that I have not been able to watch. (I have watched a few other British television shows and find the same situation. Is it a budget issue that British actors do not have the incentive to stay?)Overall, I loved the show. If I could accept the fact that my favorite characters came and went, I would remember this show very fondly.
smck_82uk I was a die-hard Monarch of the Glen fan during the shows initial run from 2000 - 05 and I followed it religiously through story lines such as the Lexie/Archie/Katrina love triangle, Stella Moon taking over at Glenbogle, the wolves storyline, Hectors death, Lexie & Archies eventual union & of course secret brother Pauls introduction. I would say the best of the show is the first 4 series, from series 5 onwards the show takes a new direction with old characters departing and new ones arriving and whilst it still stays perfectly watchable up until the end the quality of earlier series isn't really there.Overall I'd give it 10/10 though for the drama/acting & of course Scottish scenery.
