Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Home Fires Season 2 DVD:

Outstanding series.. more compelling than Downton Abbey. I can name at least 25 people who are extremely disappointed that the show ended so abruptly. Why did it stop??!!

Compelling drama cut short

By icarus-1934

from Seattle, WA

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Home Fires Season 2 DVD:

This was a compelling drama. I watched it religiously and found it to be superior to many other masterpiece dramas. The acting was superb, and character development was simply perfect. Everything about this show was truly excellent. Watching it one identified with each of the women and each session made that identification with the character deeper. The most poignant part of the story was that of Pat, who was married to a writer - a mean, abusive man who controlled her every minute, every day. She had found love with a Czeckoslovatian soldier and had finally reached the point where she could face her controlling, mean husband, and then run to try and find the man she loved and who loved her. And, unbelievably for all of us watching, the series abruptly stopped. No end of story - nothing. This is explotation of the worse kind of a reader - faithful for many episodes and intimately involved in the lives of these characters - suddenly left with nothing. No resolution, not even an advisory that this was the final episode. So...I found this the best of dramas...and the worst. Readers dedicated to this story and then left abandonded . I give it 5 stars for the story, the acting and the presentation. Not for the ending, for there was none. And that is why I would not recommend this compelling drama to another friend or acquaintance. I hope that someone on PBS knows who made the decision to stop this drama without explanation and has the courage to let them know that doing what they did was unfair and not at all professional. I would have hoped for better.
Thank you.

        Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Home Fires Season 2 DVD:

        This is a well written story about the beginning of World War II and how a town dealt with it. It showed the humorous, the sad, the loving and hatred that develops while the war is at the door to their town. I hope it's not true that they discontinued this outstanding series. Why would anyone in their right mind not continue to continue this show? Doesn't make sense.
