    This revised version of the Poldark series is excellent! The actors, particularly the leads, Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson as Demelza are suburb. They both embody their characters so well even small facial expressions convey so much emotion. This is basically a love story (or a love triangle) set against class struggles of the period. After seeing only a few of the 8 episodes, I couldn't wait to see the rest, so I had to get the DVD. The DVD contains the complete 60 minute episodes as shown in Britain instead of the 50 minute episodes shown on PBS in the U.S. Any woman with a heartbeat will fall in love with the character of Ross - his compassion for those in the "lower" class far outweighs his flaws, although his temper can cause problems, it is equaled by his great love. He's also easy on the eyes! I highly recommend this series and look forward to next season - it can't come soon enough!

    A Nice Fresh Update

    I was a big fan of the PBS series Poldark starring Robin Ellis, so it was tough to see a whole new bunch of actors interpreting characters I had grown to know well, but it was enjoyable to rediscover my favorite plot lines. What's perhaps better about this new adaptation is the element of realism. I do hope the series continues; one season barely scratches the surface of the books, and there are so many more delicious twists and turns to come!

    This has been a marvelous 1st season of a period drama set in Cornwall and begins 3 years after the American revolutionary war, with the lead character, Ross Poldark, returning to his home unaware his father has passed 6 months earlier and his financial situation uncertain. He overcomes challenges and competing interests from his Uncle/cousin and other foes. Top rate acting.

    From the superb cast to the cinematography (that part of England is SO beautiful), to the sumptuous soundtrack that you will want to get and listen to over and over again....so lush and haunting. Not enough good things to say about this spectacular PBS program.

    I think this series is for people who like outlander. Best part is you dont have to pay for a premium channel to view this one. It is from your local public broadcasting channel. It is also safe from too much blatent nudity that outlander and other historical pieces have on the premium channels.

    I'm a huge Downton Abbey fan, and this series is right up there!! I was so enthralled with the characters, storylines, and scenery, that I couldn't stop watching! I bought the dvd set to add to my collection, as it is definitely worth watching more than once!!!

    Best Masterpiece Book Adaptation

    I love this adaptation. It actually covers more that the first book (I am currently reading the second book of the series). They did such a good job with the writing, filming and acting. Such a good story. Totally worth purchasing.
