I just found this thread. I don't watch TV very often so I don't see mini-series' until they're out on DVD (or tapes in the past).
The very first mini-series that popped in my mind when I read the title of the thread was Roots. I love it. I've watched it over and over again (I get it from the library). However, hubby doesn't like it.
My second choice might be Pride and Prejudice but I'm not sure if that was a mini-series or not. I'm thinking about the one with Colin Firth. I'd like to own that one someday.
I own that version and another one. That version was made by the BBC.
I am a big Jane Austen fan and wish someone would unearth an attic full of other Austen books ,bring them to light on disc ,so we can have a break from the Housewives series on Bravo.
When TV just is too awful and full of forensics and mutilation and cops,I take out P&P and watch it, I also have Sense and Sensability.
I also have an annual viewing of Dickins's Bleak House.
I have it on disc. My BBC version starred Dianna Rigg and Denholm Elliott.
I also have the version with Gillian Anderson and Charles Dance.Its shorter .
I like the BBC disc,more detailed and truer to the book.
