Dissapointing after 1-3 but I'm in it now and will keep watching..... Jan 28, 2008
By Sofia White
I have to say I was a bit dissapointed with season 4. This doesn't mean I didn't watch or enjoy it, but the show really is not the same without you know who.
Like a good book you can hardly put down, I couldn't wait to find 39 minutes to fit in an episode of McLeod's Daughters from Seasons 1-3. (My mother loaned me all three seasons at once, talking about starting an addiction and feeding it at the same time!!!) Anyway, I got through the first three seasons at a ridiculous pace.
Then came season 4. It started off kind of wierd (after the ending of season 3, you know...). But...I did enjoy it. However, with season four I was not obsessing over when I'd be able to fit in the next episode in, or having an eight episode marathon Saturday. It just wasn't that captivating.
One thing that is odd, Drover's run just doesn't seem to be on the financial brink at all times in season 4. There used to be talk of bills, or payments, or sales, or contracts on practically every episode of seasons 1-3, all of a sudden in Season 4 financial problems are mentioned only once in a blue moon.
I have pre ordered season 5, and will probably order every season and watch till season 8. However, there was no way i could give this 5 stars, after giving seasons 1-3 5 stars. It is still a great show, and we've got nothing like it on American tv, but it's not as good as before.

Disappointed Jan 10, 2008
I loved season 1 to 3, and I gave season 4 a chance, even though I loved Claire. This season had some good moments, but for the most part it felt slow and too dramatic. I was and am very disappointed with season 4. Finally Nick and Tess marry and there is not a little while of happiness, the next big problem arrives. I am cured of McLeod's daughters. I have no urge to see season 5.

still the best TV !!!!! Nov 28, 2007
By Joseph Letizia
After seeing the end of 3 seasons,and the actors that left the show,I did not think season 4 would measure-up to high standards of season 1-3. But after taking my British friend Diana's advice,I decided to try one more season.With "Claire"-played by very talented,and beloved fan favorite Ms.Lisa Chappell,and"Becky" gone it's not quite as good;but there is still much to love here!!!! The eposode "For Love Or Money" will I promise make you cry,and ponder the human condition of love!!! Also there are many other moments that will make you laugh,cry,and think how we are all very much alike!!! There is plenty to see here,but I must admit it is not quite as good as seasons 1-3; but I also must admit that I will purchase the next season !!!!

Show gutted without Claire and Becky Jun 22, 2009
By N. Martin
McCleod's daughters was unique for television; it had heart, spirit, and charm. The premise of a group of determined women with a common goal, the development of their characters, their personal growth through life's ups and downs, was fabulous. The first three seasons focused on connections, to family, friends, heritage and the land.
The 4th season on is just another tv drama, good at times, but without the same focus on family ties and station life that so engrossed me. I couldn't wait to see all of the Seasons 1 through 3. Although the end of Season 3 was extremely well done - (I cried, and I never cry!) it truly gutted the show. The storyline moved too far away from the initial relationships and rural life, and became too convoluted to be believable.

McLeod's Daughters returns at last in the USA Jan 28, 2008
Hurray, this fantastic Australian drama is finally available in USA-format DVD. The first three seasons were broadcast by just one American channel, which then dropped it. Then ensued a long drought. At last, the story continues thanks to Koch Vision, the Nine Network, and Millennium Television. As always, the writing, casting, and acting are engaging, intimate, and utterly real. The setting in South Australia is sublimely beautiful. This is a wonderful show that deserves much greater exposure outside Australia.
