    I have been watching World Without End, but I am confused. The people who regularly post here usually have the correct answers about these kind of questions.

    In the "Making of..." show, they said it was an eight hour miniseries. On the IMDB, there are eight episodes listed. Reelz has been showing episodes that are two hours long each, so there will be either four episodes total, OR the "Making of..." show was in error and it's an eight episode show, sixteen hours total. The episode names that Reelz has listed are not those that IMDB has listed.

    I'm a bit confused. Does anyone have the real information on this?

    Looks like 8 one hour episodes shown in four two hour blocks.

    Is this a previously untelevised mini-series? I could swear I watched something like this not more than a couple of years ago. Perhaps on Starz or Showtime?

    Yes, it is a new miniseries. I suspect you are thinking of "Pillars of the Earth" which was on a couple of years ago. "World Without End" is a sequal to Pillars, and takes place in, or at least starts in 1327. Pillars starts in 1135. They are both set in the same place.

    Yes, I finally figured out that "World Without End" was originally eight one-hour episodes with episode titles of chess pieces, ecxcept the last episode named Checkmate. Reelz, for the USA audience has repackaged the eight one-hour episodes into four two-hour episodes, and gave them more conventional names like "Plague and Passion" and "A People Revolt". I wonder why?
