The Thorn Birds TV Review: In the sweeping backdrop of the Australian outback, Thorn Birds tells of the taboo romance between a beautiful woman, Meggie (Rachel Ward), and an ambitious priest, Ralph de Bricassart (Richard Chamberlain), whose dedication to the church is greater than his desire for young Meggie but barely. Spanning five decades, from a ranch in Australia to the Vatican in Rome and back, this seductive saga is based on Colleen McCullough’s bestselling novel about an unattainable and forbidden love.

This australian mini tv series is on par with the greatness of ‘Gone with the Wind‘. There is lots of drama, scandal and romance. Also the acting is superb. A timeless classic.
