    One of the Blockbusters was shutting down (surprise) by where I live and I was able to buy this mini-series for relatively cheap. I started watching it over the weekend and I am about half way through it. Definitely enjoy it so far.

    Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?

    I thought it was funny that O.J. Simpson had a cameo in the first episode.

    That brings back some memories. Saw it when I was in Jr High.

    When my kids were infants I would sometimes hold them above my head and say "Kunta. Kunta Kinte."

    The series first aired in the 70s. I used to go over to the future mcmama's dorm lobby and watch. Probably the single most-watched tv mini-series at the time.

    I watched it when it first ran on ABC as a mini-series. Great, great series. Star studded cast for its day and wonderful story.
