Based on the Nobel Prize-winning novels by John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga is an epic and highly praised series spanning three generations of the powerful Forsyte family at the turn of the 20th century. Beneath the family's imposing veneer lies a festering core of unhappy and brutal relationships. Damian Lewis (Homeland) stars as greedy, tormented Soames Forsyte with Gina McKee (Notting Hill) as his reluctant bride, Irene.

This is a nice and long dramatic story. Well written and encompassing, it needs not to be in a hurry to tell the tale. Damien Lewis is FANTASTIC as Soames, pathetic and controlling, a man really not in touch with compassion or affection. The acting in this series is top-notch. The story is quite entrancing and the characters do come alive and enter your thoughts outside of the watching. The story is full of wonderful costumes and the scenery is spectacular. An enjoyable ride through British literary history and culture.
I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it to anyone.
Put on a pot of tea and sit back. Enjoy the ride and the view.

It is difficult to give this film fair credit. I have watched Downton Abbey -the entire series - six times through. It seems that any other production pales in comparison to Downton.

I didn't get far into Forsyth, so I will give it another go

Forsythe vs Downton

By Texas Reader

from Little Elm, Texas

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Forsyte Saga: The Complete Series DVD:

Forsythe came from a book complete within itself. Downton developed over TV seasons. Both good stories but no comparison. Forsythe was a hit between the pages before we saw the characters on a screen. Simply no comparison. Forsyte is a literary classic. Downton? Who knows?

I so enjoyed watching the series on PBS a few years ago - and I rarely watch programs that go on for a few weeks. I have not had time to watch the whole set yet, but am looking forward to it.

I don't own a series; however I will purchase this one.

By The Advocate

from Mt. Laurel, NJ

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Forsyte Saga: The Complete Series DVD:

Such an excellent series which exposes hate in the family relationships of the Forsytes, even with all the wealth and comforts that they have in for that time.
The actor who plays Soames makes the story so powerful

This is my favorite PBS series.
