I enjoyed the series. I had an uncle who was in Great Britain with the Air Corp during WWII and I had heard a few of his stories--but not enough of them-- and he's not here for us to be able to hear any more so some of the themes seemed especially meaningful.

I loved this well-made series set in World War II Britain. If you've ever visited one of the decommissioned B-17 air bases in England, you can still feel the emotional residue of all those young lives risked -- and lost -- during the war. While some of the characters are stereotypes (the brash New Yorker, the bigoted shopkeeper, the bashful harmonica player, the flirtatious teenage girl), many of them are spot on. I strongly disagree with the reviewer who said there was no chemistry between Michael Shannon and Susannah York, the mature lovers at the center of the story. When Major Kiley looked at Dr. Dereham, especially in the scene on the beach, my DVD melted. I love this series and will watch it again.

The scenes between Susannah York and Michael J. Shannon were very convincing. Sussanah York was outstanding in her portrayal of a woman doctor conflicted about her feelings for a US Army officer and her wounded husband. The film tells the story of the American Air Force in Britain prior to D Day. Besides the story of the Major and the doctor, there are several other relationships which depict the problems of US servicemen in wartime Britain
The progression from dislike to love is well told as the major and the doctor face their feelings for each other.

I just finished viewing this series and enjoyed each of the episodes. They were all logically done. The stories had a soap opera ring to them, but the scenery, acting, and social atmosphere of the times really carried the series when the story line bogged down. The story was predictable and had been portrayed in other films, but still, it was a refreshing take. Everything was done in good taste. There were several stories combined in the series and the transition from each story to the next was handled very well. I was happy that I purchased the set and hope there is a follow up.

Excellent series. If you like war planes, anything World War 2 related, comedy, drama and a bit of romance, you will like this series. So worth it.

I saw most of these on PBS when they first aired. Wanted to have to share with friends. Feel good stories.

I loved We'll Meet Again. Nostalgic and well acted. Very happy with my purchase!

Really good series, and well done. There are plenty of complex relationships here, but there are also lots of vintage planes and scenes about the air war in World War II. You may find yourself thinking a good deal about the various human dilemmas raised in this series, days after you've watched an episode.

Sometimes, I found some of the 1981 blustery "macho man" overacting - aping the "macho man" garbage that was so characteristic of so many old World War II movies - a bit much, especially since most of the characters who engaged in that type of bluster were the American males. The British negative stereotyping of Americans gets really, really tiresome. I also found myself laughing sometimes at the old-fashioned, long-winded speech making by movie characters that went out of style 30 years ago. Finally, and as other reviewers have pointed out, some of the plot lines are pretty well worn out by now.

Nevertheless, this series is far more interesting and satisfying than, let's say, a newer series "My Mother & Other Strangers," which (by the way) seems to have lifted a great deal from "We'll Meet Again."
