TV events (miniseries and such, not so much regular shows)|
I'm with you on V. I only saw part of Roots but someday would like to see it all. I remember there was one about the Holocaust that I was in a place in life about it I couldn't bear to watch after seeing the first few minutes of one episode that I'd like to (in some sense of the word "like") see again.
Strangely, I don't remember seeing any miniseries all the way through til maybe post-college, (V may have been the first)... maybe it was my then-undiagnosed ADD, combined with interest in too many other things, I dunno.
TiVo has helped of late. Because I could take many months to watch it when I had the time, I really enjoyed Taken on SciFi a few years back, and one recently on the birth of the CIA whose name escapes me. Carolyn has Band of Brothers on DVD and we re-watched that over Memorial weekend and a bit thereafter. Also From the Earth to the Moon is one I know I'll watch again.
