Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I've been looking for this mini series for some time now

It was an extraordinary book and I recall really liking the mini series, though it might not be as good as I remember. So many things aren't!

The Far Pavilions - available for streaming.

2. I'm watching it now

I didn't realize (or maybe didn't remember) that this was HBO's first mini series.

I'm really enjoying it.

5. I just started watching it as well - finished Ep 2

I really liked that Aurora Leigh quote that Wally recited:

And truly, I reiterate, . . nothing's small!
No lily-muffled hum of a summer-bee,
But finds some coupling with the spinning stars;
No pebble at your foot, but proves a sphere;
No chaffinch, but implies the cherubim:
And,–glancing on my own thin, veined wrist,–
In such a little tremour of the blood
The whole strong clamour of a vehement soul
Doth utter itself distinct. Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God:
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,

The rest sit round it, and pluck blackberries,
And daub their natural faces unaware
More and more, from the first similitude.

6. I loved this when it came out way back. Tastes change...but, thanks...it's worth a re-look!

Some series get stale...but the production values in this one I think might last as a visual treat even if the storyline seems a bit dated for todays world. It's an historical treat..(at least when I saw it).
