Alternate Versions

In the original television release, the film was divided into two parts. At the end of Part I, a preview clip of the next night's episode was shown after a commercial break. The clip showed Benjamin Grossman waking up in his hospital bed with the sun shining through a window to reveal his bandaged and bloodied face. This scene was not shown in the second part itself, nor was the preview clip available on later VHS releases of the movie. See more »

When I was a kid
11 January 2006 | by goodfella0013See all my reviews

Yeah I watched this mini series with My Mom and dad as a kid. It was one of the few mini series that my 9 year old mind actually could follow. I recall it was very well done, and didn't necessarily have the feel of the typical crap mini series. It was more or less an original concept that really grabbed your attention. I would recommend this miniseries to anyone who is a fan of history and plot twists. Although most twists in this movie are either spelled out or predictable, it is still worth the time. I haven't checked to see if you can get it through netflix yet however. I would imagine not. They should play it on the history channel or something.
