With Vincenzo mentioning buying Centennial,I thtought it it was nice idea to start this thread to get people's memories of their favourite mini-series.There have been so many,some great and some not so good,so what's everyone's favourites?
In no particular order are some of my favourites ( even if they aren't so good ) from over the years....
Salems Lot (original)
Storm Of The Century
Stephen King's Golden Years
North And South
The Thorn Birds
The Last Days of Pompeii
The Sacketts (anything with Sam Elliott is worth watching!)
Rich Man Poor Man
For The Term Of His Natural Life
Testimony Of Two Men
The Bastard (though William Shatner as Paul Revere stretched things a bit)
most of my faves are stephen king adapts....
Storm of The century
V: the mini series
V: the final Battle
On The Beach (2000 version)
Roots: The Next Generation wasn't bad either (far better than the boring Rich Man Poor Man Book II). Henry Fonda and a too-brief Marlon Brando were excellent.
Also enjoyed the excellent QB VII, the hugely underrated Evening In Byzantium, and The Forsyte Saga (the original, rather than that senseless remake).
I haven't seen many but some that I like are
Pride and Prejudice (Colin Firth Version)
The History of Tom Jones
GBH (Michael Palin)
The Boys from the Black Stuff
Some that are apparently worth having in your collection are
Riget (aka The Kingdom)
and some more that i can't remember at the moment
