This is a great miniseries. Far better than Noah's Ark. Randy Quaid is good, Roger Daltrey is funny as King Boric, Whoopi Goldberg is funny too and very good, but the best actor in it is Colm Meaney. His performance deserves an award. He's the best part of the show.
This story is full of clichés, but I don't care because it's also a lot more imaginative than Noah's Ark. There's this "Romeo and Juliet" story, very touching, and it is presented with humour. It seems that the actors had a great time together, they really seem to have fun. The dance parts are good, although I don't like Lord of the Dance or Riverdance, but now, in this movie, it is accurate and it makes me want to dance too.
I loved that movie, I had fun watching it, and if you were deceived by that poor Noah's Ark (although Jon Voight was good), don't worry, this Leprechaun legend will help you forget all your doubts that a tv miniseries can be good and entertaining.
