Reviews - What do customers think about Snowy River: The McGregor Saga?
Shipped quickly and in good condition Jan 2, 2008
The item shipped quickly and was in good condition. Too bad there aren't many more episodes on the disks - only Three doesn't seem like an awful lot. But it was worth the price.
A bit of false advertising May 20, 2007
I bought this dvd because I enjoyed the Snowy River movies, and I like Guy Pearce and Hugh Jackman, so I figured, "Why not?"
The DVD consists of 3 episodes of the series set in Australia - The McGregor Saga - which, I gather, was created following the success of the Snowy River movies. Those 3 episodes are "Comeback", "The Grand Opening", and "Black Sheep". While I enjoyed the episodes quite a bit, it was a bit like jumping into the middle of something with little context, because of the nature of it being a TV series and these episodes not being the first. I'd like to see more. But, the thing that really got to me is that Guy Pearce doesn't appear ONCE in any of the three episodes. His character is talked about, but is evidently 'away' for the period of these three episodes. I guess they are trying to capitalize on his more recent success, but I don't care for the misleading tactics. Hugh Jackman, of course, is great as always.
All of that said, I would recommend this to anyone interested in good family viewing (as long as their heart is not set on seeing Guy Pearce). It's like an updated, less corny Bonanza, set in Australia.

The movie was great. It's an Austrailan Western, which features a young Hugh Jackman. If you are a western or Hugh Jackman lover, this is the perfect movie.
