Wow!!
11 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a mini-series... Especially for those Mulgrewists of you out there... Brings tears to the eyes no matter how many times you've seen it... Its a tale of poverty and wealth--love and war... Its impossible to take your eyes off of... I will say, if and when you decide to watch it (and you will:)) Make sure you have plenty of time--it's four hours long, and once you get started--there is no stopping... (Yes--it's that engrossing) ;):) Kate and Pierce make the perfect couple for this lead. Although, I heard Kate say once that while filming there was no chemistry between she and Pierce whatsoever, it definitely doesn't show on screen. Again, what a mini!!!
