I was reading another thread (don't even know which one it was) and someone mentioned watching North and South (with Patrick Swayze). I read those books in HS and loved the mini-series. I check every so often to see if it is available digitally--and it hasn't been. But when I read that thread, I checked on Amazon again and YES! It finally is. butt has been glued to the couch for 4 hours. It's so fantastically cheesy. It's Dynasty set in the 1860's. And a literal Parade of Stars...I mean it's got Robert Mitchum, Gene Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor!

How I miss the 80's!

trying to find my bliss. . . have you seen it?!?!?

I read this thread earlier today and it made me think of all the old mini series. I looked up Winds of War on Netflix and have sat on my couch reliving WWII! It was my favorite long ago! Thanks for posting the thread!

Oh man!

I don't need any more Netflix temptations!! LOL

I've only just finished Season 2 of Supernatural, with 3, 4, 6 & 7 to go! I'm skipping Season 5 - DD has the DVD set so I've seen all of them!

Same here!! And you are right, it really WAS the Dynasty of 120 years prior!

Don't feel that bad...I sat down at 10am when it started and watched until 7:30pm! Granted it did make lunch, dinner, put stuff in the crock pot for this week, laundry, and a bunch of other misc work - that could all be done within the tv viewing area! lol
