This is the story of the evolution of the town Centennial, Colorado. It follows the paths of dozens of people who come to the area for many reasons: money, freedom, or crime. It also shows the bigoted treatment of the Native Indians by the advancing US colonists. It is topped off with a murder mystery that takes 100 years to solve. Written by

As Louis Verner and Sidney Enderman are driving along in the final episode, the driver's-side rear-view mirror disappears from their Ford pickup whenever a close-up is called for (the holes where it has been unscrewed are quite evident) and reappears in the long shots. See more »
If you love history, you will love this film. How many times have you watched a film or miniseries and wondered, what happened next? You need not worry with Centennial. As a historian I hate loose ends. There are none here.
We so often forget what "history" a geographical place has. This ties the history of a specific place through multiple eras very nicely. It follows the history of the individuals and families that inhabit an area from the late 1700s through the 1970s.
This story happens to takes place in Colorado. But even if you do not like the west or frontier stories, it does not matter. The story will captivate you. Every place has a history like this.
I watched it as a teenager in the 70s, taped it on VHS in the 80s and finally have it on DVD now. My wife and I watched it in under a week--all 21 hours! The acting and cinematography are good, but secondary--the story will enthrall you!
