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.

Really? Then I guess that means that CanIstreamit is not very reliable as it says it is not available. I'm not a Netflix guy so can't check.

"Hatfields & McCoys" is worth a watch. It's a little too late to mention, but History Channel had another showing today.

In order of how good they were.
Roots (even though it was based on a lie it was great television)
From the Earth to the Moon
Band of Brothers

I almost forgot, the mini-series that started them all.

Thanks for the heads up on The Hunted.
I started it this morning and I'm already addicted.

some from the UK that I love are Zen, Luther, and Sherlock.

While Luther and Sherlock are not really considered mini-series, they are relatively short with only 6 or 8 episodes a season for Luther and 3 episodes a season for Sherlock.

I don't know yet how good it is, although it is getting high marks, but there is a new 7-episode miniseries coming right up (within Tivo guide data currently) on Sundance. It stars Elizabeth Moss (Peggy from Mad Men) and Holly Hunter. How bad could that be?

'Top of the Lake'

ETA - first two eps March 18

Rome (HBO) is probably my favorite of all time. I think it's technically a series, but it has a miniseries feel to me.

Dirk Gently was good.
Sea of Souls was also good.

I agree that these were really good.
