    well it's not a mini-series but i have the same issue and watched the late 70s UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS when I couldn't sleep (through Netflix).

    while good and interesting it somehow or other had me out in 20 minutes. i just finished 68 episodes.

    it all depends on whether or not you like british period stuff

    Also try Firefly, viewed in the intended order, not the actual broadcast order. It's about 13 to 14 hours total.

    I'll add the Ewan McGregor travel docs.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0403778/ Long Way Round - around the world on a motorcycle. Rated 9.0 on IMDB and I can highly recommend it. McGregor proves to be just as or more adventuresome than Palin.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0959858/ Long Way Down - from the northern tip of Scotland to South Africa on motorcycles. 8.4 on IMDB.

    Is my reading comprehension going, or is something wrong? The text says 'your all time favorites from the past, like 'The Thorn Birds' and 'North and South', but the sidebar on the right lists none of those…?!?!?!

    They showed "North and South" Books 1 & 2 (maybe Book 3 also) a few weeks ago. I believe they played "The Thorn Birds" sometime in January.

    Not a lot of depth and a few cliché characters but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. I would watch another series if they make more.

    According to CanIstreamit, Winds of War/War and Remembrance are not easily seen these days but I recently reread the books, well, Audibled them, and was captivated.
