"Legacy" ushered in the second half of Pillars of the Earth and while this show is not quite good, it is another strong dramatic series from Starz, a network that was late to the scripted television party, but is making that ground up quickly with a great miniseries like this and dramas and comedies like Spartacus and Party Down.
Alison Pill is clearly the "breakout" star of this series. She was great on In Treatment and hopefully her stellar work her will lead to bigger roles in the future. Ian McShane is usually good, but at times his performance here has felt a bit phoned in.
Pillars is slow-moving at times, but hey, it's better than The Pacific.
