Just watched THE CHANGELING with George C. Scott again. One of my very favorite movies.

This brings up a pet peeve of mine. I'll post it here because it is movie related. Years ago, if a show was called a mini-series, it had at least four parts. A movie that lasted two nights was called a 2-part movie, and a movie that lasted three nights was called either a trilogy or a 3-part movie. For the last few years, however, they are now calling 2-part movies "mini-series." I'm sorry, but two parts does not a series make, mini or otherwise!!!
Whoops! I just noticed I wrote the wrong thing. It is 7 parts, not 9.

I once went to a dance recital for my granddaughter. The music was so loud that I wasn't expecting it. People started to run out of the auditorium. It caused my right ear to start bleeding. The dance recital came to a screeching halt before it ever got started. I thought I was having a stroke. They had to call the EMS. Needless to say, there were ramifications to follow. Like all the mothers wanting their money back that they had to spend to buy so many tickets. The kids were very disappointed to say the least.

I too read the books first. I remember the series very well and the sequel. We were glued to the TV. Would love to see it again. Another great series was the John Jakes series North and South and the sequel which escapes my mind at the moment. I read those books also. One of my favorite authors.

We also have "North and South" on DVD. The only mini-series we bought at a regular store was "Centennial" (on sale at WalMart a few years ago). We got these two, as well as "Captains and the Kings," "Kingdom Hospital," "Storm of the Century," and possibly another mini-series or two on ebay, as well as movies and regular TV series. We started saving the shows and movies we really like, as TV is going downhill fast.
