I've just watched Pillars of the Earth, which I gather is in the same vein
as Game of Thrones. I've not read the book, and when I started the
miniseries, I was not at all convinced—was sure it was going to be terrible.
But it actually grew on me very quickly, and while there was plenty of
scenery-chewing, it was also thoroughly entertaining, with a great cast and
characters I really enjoyed following. Anyone else seen it?
