Anyone who knew me back in high school would remember that I was a total John Jakes, "North and South" mini-series FANATIC. Every day at school we would dissect the episode from the night before. I swooned over Patrick Swayze and Monica swooned over the curly dark-haired guy (I can't remember his name right now). I even posted pictures from the tv guide in my locker at school.
I'm reliving a little bit of my 80s past today with disc 1 of the mini-series, thanks to my brother, Mike and his Netflix subscription. I had no idea he was a fan too! I guess I made him watch it with me back then so he developed an appreciation for the show. Bring on Orrie Main, Madeline, her evil husband (David Carradine), the evil Bent, and the rest of the gang. I think I'll sit back, make a faux mint julep, and enjoy the show.
I wonder if Netflix also has my other 80s mini-series, "V"? That will be my next movie request.
I love the 80s!
