Thank You Reelz Channel
LONESOME DOVE (1989/TV MINI-SERIES) You know it’s a good week when you stumble onto one of the all-time great TV mini-series! Though I already own Lonesome Dove (on VHS–yuck!) I couldn’t resist watching the first two two-hour parts (of four, each two hours in length) which aired this week on Reelz Channel. Of course, now I’m hooked and am DVRing the rest–can’t wait to watch ‘em. If you never saw this series, or if it’s been years since you did, be sure to check out the multiple showings which Reelz is running all this week. What an all-star cast!—with unforgettable performances from Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, Angelica Huston, Diane Lane (so young!), Robert Urich, Chris Cooper, Danny Glover, Ricky Schroder and even Steve Buscemi. This is one mini-series that really does the book credit–and that’s saying alot since this book is in a league by itself. Check out your Reelz Channel listings, get your DVR set and get ready for an 8 hour treat that’s worth every minute.
