It is late in the Victorian era, and two branches of an upper-crust family--the "good" Forsytes, headed by well-meaning Old Jolyon, and the "bad" Forsytes, headed by crusty barrister James--are at odds, eternally squabbling. The 'saga' focuses on the younger generations - Young Jolyon, Soames, Winifred, June - and their struggles with emotional repression, the rejection of Victorian mores, and the sea changes taking place as a less repressive society emerged. Every family may indeed have its vicissitudes, but few have as many as John Galsworthy's Forsytes.

Outstanding performances by Damien Lewis & Corin Redgrave. Some costume-dramas are beautiful to watch, but thin on substance, but everything in FS, from the dialogue to the characterizations, is superb. One of the best costume-dramas I've seen. And you've got to love the spinster aunts (what good period drama doesn't have at least one): "The loss of a husband is nothing to the loss of a good butler, my dear".
