A TOP NOTCH MINI SERIES!-I HAVE THIS MINI SERIES-CONTACT ME
10 March 2004 | by (HUXLEY, IOWA) – See all my reviews

NO SPOILERS HERE!! Do you remember the days of the mini series back in the 1970s and the 1980s? I catch a current mini series now and then, and I am always left feeling somewhat flat. Kane And Abel always leaves the connotation in my mind about the biblical brothers Cain And Abel.This mini series is rich with great actors, and the setting.How can you miss with Sam O'Neill, Ron Silver, and of course Peter Strauss.The costumes are just gorgeous, not to mention the sets.I read a comment where the person was not happy with this show. I have to totally disagree.If you like the earlier mini series from an earlier era, then I highly recommend this show to you.I have this mini series. If you are interested,please contact me by a private message. or you can e-mail me. marianna1776@hotmail.com
