Geez, this is a dry one, isn’t it? I mean, I get that what happened to the Acadians was crappy and we should learn about it and all that, but I don’t go to Canadian Historical Moment things for a simple history lesson. I want lines that will be burned into my head until the day I die.
Maybe I’m being unfair. Maybe if this one had aired every hour when I was a child watching unlimited television I would pepper conversations with “The men were called to a meeting” but I sure don’t think so.
The production values in this one are good. That’s more than I can say for plenty of other ones. They could have done a movie with these sets and costumes and such and maybe that woulda been great. But as one of these Heritage Minutes, it doesn’t impress. I can’t go above One and a Half Pieces of PDR’s Reviewing System Cake and that’s almost all for how it looks.
