Land Girls: Series 1 (on DVD)

Land Girls: Series 1
[DVD Land]

This is a drama set in World War II England about a group of women working on a farm as land girls. During the war women living in the city went to the countryside and worked on farms for the war effort. I picked this up thinking I'd get a sense of what life was like for the land girls; I liked it at the beginning but it turned into a soap opera type of show before long. I thought it'd be of a historical focused show, but the time era is really just a backdrop to the gossipy characters. I didn't really enjoy it, but if you're more into dramas than I am, you may like it better than I did. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
