Sometimes I order movies and miniseries through interlibrary loan. It’s like a slower version of Netflix.
One of my friends told me I should watch the 2004 BBC miniseries "North & South," which is based on the Elizabeth Gaskell novel of the same title. So I put in a request at the library. I received a miniseries titled "North & South." However, the one I got was the 1985 miniseries based on the John Jakes novel set in the Civil War era.
I thought, "Okay, interesting." And of course, since I love history, I took it home and am in the process of watching it. (I did put in another request for the series I originally ordered.)
The 80s series I’m watching is somewhat like a glorified Civil War soap opera, but it has a lot of interesting people in it. People like Patrick Swayze, Elizabeth Taylor, David Ogden Stiers, and Kirstie Alley. Quite a collection!
It’s interesting to watch, if only because I find the Civil War era fascinating.
