episodes in beautiful setting
3 November 1999 | by MarHeikeSee all my reviews

After about 30 years I still remember some of the episodes and most of all the wonderful landscape of Ontario where it was filmed.

Maybe there are others like Dave Rowland, who know the contents better having it on tape, but I remember loving every single minute despite the fact it was low budget and possibly not an exiting story.

After 27 years of waiting to see al this I finally got into Whitefish Falls, and it feeled like the end of a long journey for me. This TV series founded a love for Canada I will surely not loose as long as I live!
