I was alittle reluctant to watch this version simply because of a review that I had read. But I went ahead and watched it on T.V., and I was very, very pleased with the whole movie. I was so impressed with it, that I went ahead and bought the DVD version so that I would have the bonus features as well. Usually some "mini-series" have 'dead spots/fillers' which usually are the parts where you get up to get a cola or a snack, but honestly...... this movie was enthralling all the way through. great version, great entertainment, I definately recommend it.
