Yes, but it was a very, very nice shot. Made me check on Wikipedia.

Just cranked up the DVR and watched the finale. Yah it was a bit 'rushed' but overall a great mini-series, well acted and beautifully CGIed. Enjoyed the book ages ago when it was new. One of very few things watchable on the vast TV wasteland.

Finally, got around to this since my friend told me about it. If I'm honest I'm only in it to see Atwell... This would've been better to watch BEFORE Game of Thrones because it's pretty weak next to it.

ReelzChannel Acquires U.S. Rights To Pillars' Follow-Up World Without End'
By The Deadline.com - May 22, 2012

ReelzChannel has snagged U.S. premiere rights to the eight-hour miniseries World Without End, the sequel to Scott Free Films and Tandem Communications' mini The Pillars Of The Earth that aired last year on Starz and garnered seven Emmy nominations. The two projects were based on the Ken Follett epic novels.

ReelzChannel, which had great success with airing The Kennedys miniseries via its TV About Movies platform it competed with Pillars in last year's Emmy Miniseries or Movie category plans a fall 2012 airdate; it acquired and aired the nine-part Pillars for its second U.S. window last year after Starz. With The Kennedys we conditioned our audience to know that our network is home to the biggest miniseries, and World Without End is exactly that, ReelzChannel SEO Stan Hubbard said.

World Without End, with a budget of $46 million, picks up 200 years after Pillars in 14th century England with a new cast of characters including Caris (Charlotte Riley), who inspires her medieval town to confront the Church and the Crown as they fight to save their town from ruin and, ultimately, usher in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment. Cynthia Nixon, Miranda Richardson, Ben Chaplin, Peter Firth and Sarah Gadon co-star. Michael Caton-Jones directed.

I finally got around to watching this series. Had it on my DVR for a real long time...2 years? ?!?!

CGI was fantastic. Story was pretty intriguing though from reading back through the last 4 pages some feel it was rushed.

I guess I'm a sucker for anything with Ian McShane in it.
