| Extension of HARP IN THE SOUTH
I was actually fortunate enough to see both miniseries back-to-back - I'd hired them from the local library at the same time. They were shot simultaneously (same actors, same sets, etc...) and released in the same year (1987) - which is one way to keep costs down, and the main barrier to making miniseries seems to be the cost factor. POOR MAN'S ORANGE, adapted from Ruth Park's sequel to THE HARP IN THE SOUTH, is an extension of the trials and tribulations of the Darcy family, to whom we were introduced in the first miniseries. Like THE HARP IN THE SOUTH, it's nothing overly special, but the characters are loveable, in their own unique ways, and this certainly won't disappoint the masses. 7/10.
