Breathless takes me back to my youth

Please make a season 2 - loved every moment of the series. This cannot be the end especially after the climax of season 1. I will be very disillusioned with British TV and PBS...Read complete review

Please make a season 2 - loved every moment of the series. This cannot be the end especially after the climax of season 1. I will be very disillusioned with British TV and PBS if Breathless does not continue. I have watched PBS for 40 years and will continue to lobby for another season. Much more to reveal about the characters. Don't leave us hanging like this ! I expect more from the producers & PBS.

Is Breathless over?

The DVD says there are 6 episodes? I watched 4 and there were no more shown on my PBS. It didn't seem like any conclusions - other than the death of the men guy...Read complete review

The DVD says there are 6 episodes? I watched 4 and there were no more shown on my PBS. It didn't seem like any conclusions - other than the death of the men guy - occurred. What's up with this? Please don't start with a series and then dump it in the middle. This seems to have happened here.

It was a HUGE mistake to cancel this series! It was outstanding....and we, the audience, were just left hanging. PLEASE bring this show back. The acting, story lines and setting were excellent. SO very sad this series was dropped:(

Absolutely Stunning Portrayal Of The Age Of Opportunity!

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Breathless (Original UK Edition) DVD:

Loved every beautiful minute! For those of us who lived this era when England and America offered the opportunity of lavish lifestyles for the educated, go-getters, as both countries were in the midst of 1950s economic resurgence. This movie captures the essence of rising above one's childhood poverty, to middle-class. Every character portrays the personality of people we knew, their struggles, insecurities, strengths and determination. Set in the medical field of young careers of doctors, nurses, families, patients and medical discovery that made health hurdles achievable. This OBGYN is portrayed perfectly as a gentle, compassionate, man who understood his patients' needs, and women, in general. Reminds me of my own (1960s) OBGYN's rare and awesome special bedside manner. Filled with mystery and surprises. I'm looking for the soundtrack. The music is perfect for nostalgic reminiscing.
