Snowy River: The McGregor Saga

Show Summary

This Australian drama is based on the poem "Man From Snowy River" by Banjo Paterson, written in 1890. The series takes place years after the race in the poem and follows the lives of the McGregor Clan. It explores the trials and tribulations of Matt McGregor, a widowed father, raising his three children; Colin (the town preacher), Rob and his daughter Danni (Daneilla). Matt frequently finds himself battling against those who set out to exploit the local population and the land, whilst stuggling with more personal issues that are closer to home. It is set during the early 19th-century in the township of Paterson's Ridge in Australia's Snowy Mountains. This series was also known as: Banjo Paterson's - The Man From Snowy River

    I love this show so much. You can buy the series from australian ebay. They're just over 40 dollars. They so need to bring it back. With the same cast. But this time Danni should be married and have some children and so should rob. That would be so good.

    They should bring Kathleen and Michael from England and keep jessie mcClusky in it. I have to watch this everyday. And pick out the best bits. Its so good. Can't write 100 words so i'm just going to write anything. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blahmoreless

  • An original idea based on a famous poem...so what went wrong?

    8.8
    This show is one which I dearly love.



    Based in the Snowy Mountains, the show had a lot to offer with strong storylines and cast.



    The first two seasons were the better ones, featuring the rilvary between the Blackwoods and the McGregors.



    In Season 3 they started playing with characters, Joelene Crnogorac left the show as Danni and was replaced with Kristie Raymond - who was never the same.



    Other characters soon followed the exiting including Rodney Bell who played Frank Blackwood. As terrible as his character was, he added a unique charm, interest and a darker side to the "good" McGregors.



    Amanda Douge also left the show having played Victoria Blackwood and a similiar "American" type of her was introduced in the form of Montana Hale, played by Gabrielle Fitzpatrick.



    The worst part was the show loosing Wendy Hughes and Ben Guerens, who played Kathleen and Michael O'Neil. This made the final season very flat.



    The last two seasons, did introduce one interesting character who did fit in with the series, Josh, played by Daniel Daperis who was adopted by Emily and Colin.



    Overall, it was a beautiful old-fashioned show which the whole family could enjoy.moreless
  • A Australian Classic!

    9.0
    I loved Banjo Patterson's Man from Snowy River when I was little and I loved this show when it was on.

    It was great to see the classic Australian setting of olden times and see the struggles that they had to go through.

    The strong Australian cast was great and the relationships between the characters kept you watching every week.



    The closest thing to this show now would be McLeods Daughters.
