30 Day Tv Show Challenge: Day 17

Day 17 - Favorite mini series:

Tough question.

I dont think I have a favorite. 


'Salem's Lot 
(The 1979 version)

The Tommyknockers

The Stand


Yeah I love Stephen King lol

I do think I need to go back and watch them all over again to pick a fave. I havent seen them all in their entirety in years. The Stand is my favorite book though.


  1. Oh, that's easy for me - North and South Book I :) Kirstie Alley as crazy ol' Virgilia Hazard, David Carradine as Justin LaMont, and Johnny Cash as John Brown... awesome.

    Yep, that would be my choice. Now I suddenly feel the urge for a cigar and a mint julep... LOL

  2. I don't think i've ever watched a mini-series before. I guess i'd have to say that the 10th kingdom is my favourite though because I did see the first episode of it and it was, I think, on for 5 episodes? Not sure though. I know I can get it on dvd though. I have always wanted to see the rest of it because I was so hooked, but then went to a friends house and missed the next installment. Then when I tuned into the third one, nothing made sense LoL because I missed the 2nd one. :-/ :p.

  3. I have never heard of that! I cant believe I've never heard of that and it has Johnny Cash in it..Wth?! I'm going to have to look into it.

    Speaking of Cash and tv movies, I really like the movie "Murder in Coweta County" which also starred Andy Griffith. If I'm not mistaken, June Carter Cash was also in the movie. I think it may have been based on a true story.

    I have it on DVD somewhere. It was a good one!

  4. I hate when that happens and thats one reason I dont watch mini series! I just cant remember to keep up with them =/ It used to be different back in the old days (and by that I mean early 90s) when we only had about four channels to watch! (yup, I used to be THAT redneck heh)

  5. LoL well we had a lot of channels, but I still had only about the same amount of channels to watch. I didn't really develop an interest in Architecture or Art until around high school, but even with art, i'd much rather go to a museum in person instead of sitting on my couch or in my computer chair watching other people go to a museum. It's equivalent to reading a book thru those stupid E-books instead of holding an actual book; for me, anyway. LoL!

    Haha! yeah I watch shows from the 90s and I can't believe how current they STILL Feel. Like the Nanny. I watch that show and despite the fact we have HD now, it seems like if I got a concussion and forgot a lot of stuff; I could be fooled into believing that show was new and on the air still. OThers from the 90s, not so much, but I think other stations in the 90s didn't invest in updated recording cameras until the late 90s.

  6. I'm the same way. I much rather go see things in person than watch about it on TV. Well certain things anyway. There's some things I like watching on tv.

    You're totally right. The 90's still feel so relevant. It seems like 1999 was just yesterday! I cant believe another decade has passed! Home Improvement is another one you can tune in and feel like it's current. Same with Roseanne. Nothing is outdated about those shows at all. I like The Nanny too.

  7. I admit that on The Golden Girls, they used current (1980s) topics and news events as inspiration for their jokes and storyline, which is why Bea Arthur eventually was at odds with the writers, but I still think the jokes can be timeless. All a person has to do is know some simple history and they can get the jokes :p. That or not be afraid to learn.

    I can tell ya, it wasn't the American education system that taught me who Gorbachev was LoL! It was the Golden Girls.

    I actually liked Rosanne's show despite her controversial scandal where she said her parents raped her; and the theory that that's how she became famous. For awhile there, I thought she was actually married to John Goodman :-/
