Yeah, you should at least be marginally interested in other cultures to appreciate it.

It's not as action packed as some might think. But the tension in the drama is palpable. And all the stuff you learn, you would have to read like five books to get the same info!

I always sort of liked his 'house girl' Fujiko [Smile]

It is a great show, with many layers. I have watched the dvd box, all eps. three times since I bought it. And I discover new things every time.

I saw a teaser today for LMN channel- they are having mini-series mania starting next week, Nov. 23. http://www.lmn.tv/
It is the 25th anniversary of the Thorn Birds.
I don't get this channel though, cuz I only have basic cable, not the expanded version.

'Edge of Darkness' is another good one. The late Bob Peck was great in it:

Wiki Edge of Darkness

Beyond Hollywood Edge of Darkness Remake

Devolution here,

You do have to watch the first mini series then the final battle then the TV series in that order.

V only works like that.

I have owned V the mini series and the Final Battle for a few years now and still think they are great to watch,but you do have to except it can look dated against newer series.
Have just purchased V the series on dvd and am upto episode 4,i loved watching it as a youngster and it's still great if a little cheesey in places.My only complaint is the sound can be a bit poor in places but the picture quality has transfered well.
Shame it got cancelled after one series and ended on a cliff hanger that was never resolved(unless you read the books).Also it was rumored to be the most expensive series made at the time costing 1 million dollars per episode.

First it was a 3-part mini-series (1983)
then a 22 episode weekly series (1986).

I watched it in the 80s when the finnish MTV (not THAT MTV) showed it here.

I remember that it was a great show with nice twists.
Made in Australia so it´s kind of exotic.

Check out the synopsis here:

Was The Gambler considered a Mini-series? If so that was a good one.
