The Pillars of the Earth (2010)

Featuring:  Ian McShane, Donald Sutherland

The Pillars of the Earth is an 8-part miniseries that centers on the construction of a cathedral in 12th-century England. The series is from the Starz network so you can't expect the production values of an HBO show or all the hot sexin' of a Showtime series but the story is good, the acting is good, it doesn't look cheesy and you do still get some sexin'. I really enjoyed the series and if you like shows like The Tudors you'll probably like this too.

If you've got a lazy Saturday and are looking for a marathon TV series session this is a good one to go with. You've got action, intrigue, a good plot and Al "feed him to the pigs" Swearengen (Ian Mcshane) from Deadwood playing the villain, you can't go wrong here.
