A terrific mini-series!
3 April 1999 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

A great mini-series! Very engrossing and entertaining. The saga of a family traced from poverty in Ireland to eminence in America. This 1981 mini-series starred a pre-James Bond Pierce Brosnan and a pre-Star Trek Kate Mulgrew, along with a great supporting cast. Also, a fine musical score composed by veteran television composer Morton Stevens - (Hawaii Five-0, Police Woman) only adds more enjoyment to this outstanding production. It is available on home video. See it!
