One of the Best Shows!
26 June 2009 | by bluecoronet77See all my reviews

I just finished watching all eight episodes of Dolphin Cove, having never seen the series when it ran in 1989. It had a short run, but given the quality of the acting and writing, I'd rather have eight episodes of this than none at all. The series incorporates quite a few themes including: family, healing, Aboriginal stories and practices, adolescence, communication -- both inner and outer, and between different cultures and different species. The acting was top notch and the actors were given very good scripts to work with. All in all, an outstanding series.

Does anyone know if they filmed any episodes that never were shown because of the series being canceled?
