The mini-series for all romance lovers out there. Not only are the love stories engaging and heartfelt but the show is one of the most visually amazing shows of the '80s.
You have stars before they were stars like Kirstie Alley and Jonathan Frakes. And then you have stars at the height of the popularity like Parker Stevenson and Genie Francis. And of course you have great guest stars like David Carradine, Elizabeth Taylor and Robert Mitchum. The show does a great job of showing both sides of the Civil War and wanting you to root for the friendship between George and Orry. One boy from the North and one boy from the South who meet at Westpoint before the Civil War. Granted Book 3 isn't as engaging but it is still one of the best mini-series ever made.
