Thas is one of the TV shows your can't stop watching. It is very well put together and good acting
I have to say that i was expecting a movie as well. However I do think that the mini series is working better.
I don't agree with a few of the changes that they have made to the story line ... It takes all the edge away ...
They have done a great job with casting.
Great job!!! Can not wait for the rest of the episodes ...
