YesAsia Editorial Description

ATV's Fatherland is the station's most classic drama from the RTV years, even beating out TVB in the ratings battle when it started airing in 1980. Fatherland was broadcast in three installments - Home on the River Pearl, Radical City, and American Dream - offering a sweeping depiction of Chinese modern history from the commoner's perspective. The final chapter of the series, American Dream revolves around a common, tragic practice in the early 1900s when countless farmers and laborers were lured by promises of wealth to the United States where gold supposedly lined the sidewalks. After a grueling and dangerous journey, what greets them is a life of hard indentured labor. American Dream portrays the conditions of the early Chinese diaspora as well as the changes that fall upon the Yeung family and their small village during these big times.

Major letdown! Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
I was going to give this series 4.5 stars out of 5 until the last two episodes. The first 6 episodes, though not on par with the 36 episodes of Fatherland I, still had some of its heart. It was still very educational and touching. It was worth watching, at the very least degree, for closure purposes. However I would like to pretend the last 2 episodes did not happen. After the great build up and anticipation, the ending was a terrible letdown. It was totally inconsistent with the themes that were built in Fatherland I. Fatherland, whom I believe to be the best 36 episodes in Hong Kong TV series history, seemed pointless after the last 2 episodes. I felt totally empty after finishing this series, didn't feel there was adequate or appropriate closure.

WHAT WERE THE PRODUCERS OF FATHERLAND III thinking???? I would've rioted after the airing of the last episode if I lived in Hong Kong at the time, and I don't think I would've been alone. Heard many people closely followed this series when it aired.
I hated the main character, and again I don't think I'm alone. In my book, he's the most hated non-villian main character out of any series I've ever seen. I must commend the actor Lau Chi Wing though, for being professional and taking the chance of destroying his popularity with this role. I hope his career didn't suffer too much, as I am not sure if he had control over the script. I think I'm going to find some booze now so I can forget about the ending.

One of the best ATV Series in the 80s Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
When ATV and TVB were fighting for the top ratings, this series beat TVB ratings sucessfully. A mega series and star starring old time actor and host, Lau Chi Wing, female actress, Yu On On and lots of old time movie stars seen acting during the Shaw Brother era.
