    In addition to the already mentioned Band of Brothers and Lonesome Dove I would add Salem's Lot, Chiefs and The Pacific.

    2. The Holocaust. It made quite an impact on me. I was just a teenager.

    Both of these miniseries were in 1978.
    Centennial was the first one to pop into my head. Really enjoyed it.

    Nope. I lived in a different state then.

    Of course Band of Brothers and Roots, Pacific wasn't quite as good as Band of Brothers but still good, I think because it didn't follow one group but several different storylines. I'd add V, it started as a mini series in the 80's, then became a series and ran a couple seasons, then came back a few years ago in a reboot for a couple of seasons.

    What is the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes show called ? If that counts it's either that or Band of Brothers.

    Wow, forgot about that one. I think my mom watched that one, but I can't recall much about it. Seems like there was a time where Richard Chamberlain was the king of the miniseries. He was in Centennial, The Thorn Birds and Shogun, wasn't he? That's three of them in what, 5 or 6 years?
